The Gaston Bauer Lecture 

The Gaston Bauer Lecture was instituted in 1988 to honour this warm and caring physician who has contributed so much to medical education, cardiology and research into cardiovascular disease. 
Gaston Bauer was born in Vienna in 1923 and he and his family fled to Italy in 1938 and thence to Australia in September 1939 just after the outbreak of World War II. Gaston undertook private study and gained entry into Medicine at the University of Sydney graduating with first class Honours and the University Medal in 1946. 
He left Sydney for Vienna in 1949 to work for a year as a Medical Officer for the United Nations program for the resettlement of refugees - a post from which he helped many people, including some of our most eminent physicians and cardiologists, to come and settle in Australia. 
He then worked for two years in London with John McMichael and Paul Wood before returning to Sydney where he shared rooms with Stan Goulston, and worked as clinical assistant at Prince Alfred and North Shore, and then was appointed as Physician at Sydney Hospital in 1955. He moved to the Royal North Shore Hospital in 1972
