Introduction

Dr Cynthia Holland achieved a PhD in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Melbourne in 2006, an Honours degree in Law in 1998, and qualified as a Barrister-at-Law in the State of Victoria, Australia in 2005. She has worked extensively in the Health Care sector, particularly in specialist multi-disciplinary Surgical and Palliative Oncology teams as a Senior Clinician. In her roles as Barrister, Cynthia has appeared in most Victorian jurisdictions including the Magistrates, County and Supreme Court as well as a number of Administrative Tribunals. Her medico-legal research incorporates a keen interest in forensic and mental health issues. She was awarded a US based international Churchill Fellowship in 2009, leading to residency at Harvard University, Massachusetts during 2011-12 as the first Australian Advanced Leadership Fellow attending Harvard Business and Law Schools. Cynthia retained the position of Legal Counsel to Oncology Social Work Australia (OSWA) from 2007 to 2016. Dr Holland has worked as a Clinical and Post-Doctoral Lecturer, whilst building hospital based treatment programs for parents living with life threatening malignancies and their young children. In Australian court and medical settings, Dr Holland's clinical practice prioritises rehabilitative interventions which treat patient families and young carers through to adulthood. Most recently she has practiced as an ANZICA accredited Statutory Counselor in Infertility Consultancy.
