The Webster Memorial Gold Medal
Awarded for exceptional academic performance in Third and Fourth Year

The Webster Gold Medal is the highest honour awarded by the Society available to a graduating student and is awarded only for exceptional academic performance in both the third and fourth years of study by a student who achieves 75% or greater in all subjects, except one, which can be no lower than 70%

This award recognising excellence is named in honour of Alfred Edwin Webster, who was one of the ten foundation members of the PSWA. This group of pharmacists saw the need, formed the Society, guided the drafting of legislation and steered that legislation through Parliament. After serving as a Councillor, Alfred Webster later served as Registrar for nine years and died at a young age while still in office. He was a person who gave much to and achieved much for his profession. This award commemorates his achievements.
