International Engagement, 2016
In 2016, as the RANZCP President, I have had the opportunity to participate in a range of stimulating scientific conferences throughout the world. It has been a great privilege to have participated in the WPA’s regional conference in collaboration with the Philippine Psychiatric Association in Manila, and the International Congress held with the South African Society of Psychiatrists in Cape Town. It has been a very stimulating year and I look forward to continuing the close connections developed along the way between the RANZCP and all those I have worked with throughout the year.
