The McCallum Founder’s Lecture in Dermatology was been established at The University of Queensland by Professor Richard McCallum (MBBS Class of 1968) to honour his father, the late Dr Norman ‘Norm’ McCallum. Dr McCallum contributed greatly to his profession of dermatology in his roles as teacher, mentor and clinician. Dr McCallum was the only Queensland foundation member of the Australasian College of Dermatology. Throughout his career, Dr McCallum also contributed through his clinical practices in Brisbane, the Gold Coast and Bundaberg, fostering the spirit of collaboration amongst professionals in the discipline of dermatology.

This lecture has been made possible through the generous philanthropy of Professor Richard McCallum, and supported by the Australasian College of Dermatologists (Queensland Faculty) and Queensland Institute of Dermatology.
