RANZCOG
The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists

Dr Justin Frederick Nasser
1967–2021

It is with deep regret that RANZCOG informs members of the death of Dr Justin Nasser on 14 November 2021.

Justin was born 9 March 1967 to his parents Malcolm and Helene, a paediatrician and GP respectively. Raised in Queensland, Justin completed his primary and secondary school education in Brisbane, attending Our Lady of the Rosary School Kenmore (1973–1975), St Joseph’s College Nudgee Junior Indooroopilly (1976–1979), St Joseph’s College Gregory Terrace (1980–1984) and Indooroopilly State high school (1985).

Justin was awarded a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) from the University of Queensland in 1991 and became a Fellow of RANZCOG in 2003.

After obtaining his specialist qualifications in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, he spent two years of subspecialty training in Obstetrical and Gynaecologic Ultrasound at the Royal Women’s Hospital and the Mercy Hospital for Women in Melbourne. During this time, he obtained a Diploma in Diagnostic Ultrasound (DDU) from the Australasian Society for Ultrasound in Medicine (ASUM).

He returned to the old Gold Coast Hospital as a Staff Specialist and developed the first local tertiary level Obstetrical and Gynaecologic ultrasound service. He continued his interests in clinical and academic medicine, and in 2010 obtained a Masters of Reproductive Medicine.

He worked in both the public and private sectors in the fields of obstetrics, gynaecology, reproductive medicine, and women’s imaging. Our hearts and thoughts are with his wife Pam and children Yasmine, Mia and Kelly, and his loving extended family.

We have lost a great friend and colleague.

Vale Justin.

Dr Benjamin Bopp
President, RANZCOG
