Who we are

The centre is named after Professor Vernon C Marshall whose contribution to the Australian Medical Council (AMC) in various capacities, including as past Chairperson of the AMC Board of Examiners and AMC Editor-in-Chief, is internationally recognised.

A photograph of Professor Marshall is placed in the candidate area of the NTC, which is particularly significant given the care and attention he afforded AMC candidates through the production of the AMC series of examination publications, under his leadership.
