Faculty of Adult Psychiatry 2024 Conference


16 - 18 August 2024


InterContinental Sydney Double Bay
33 Cross St, Double Bay NSW 2028



The Faculty of Adult Psychiatry is proud to present its first ever joint conference, partnering with the Section of Private Practice Psychiatry and the ADHD Network in August 2024. This is a great opportunity to discuss issues that have commonality across these important areas of psychiatry. The theme of the conference is silos in medicine and this collaboration is a very real attempt to break them down and talk across important specialty areas in our College.

The conference will be held in Double Bay in Sydney. Double Bay is known for its long idyllic harbour beaches and leafy streets lined with charming heritage architecture. The organisers hope that easy access to Sydney will assist in your ability to attend, and the setting will encourage you to enjoy some fresh air and consider new thoughts!


The Organising Committee is currently curating a dynamic program which will be published online in June 2024. 

The conference will commence with a half day of sessions followed by a cocktail reception on Friday evening, welcoming delegates to Sydney. The scientific program will continue Saturday morning with a full day of sessions, followed by an optional social activity and conference dinner that night. The conference will conclude early Sunday afternoon after a morning of sessions and a late lunch. 


Registration is now open. Early bird pricing ends on 23 June 2024.
