The Ian Simpson Award
The Ian Simpson Award was established in 1976 to honour Dr Ian Simpson (SA), who was a foundation member of the ANZCP and who became ANZCP President in 1966. The Award acknowledges the most outstanding contributions to clinical psychiatry through service to patients and the community. The Award is given by nomination only.
The Award is made to a person who has made an outstanding contribution to clinical psychiatry, such as contributions to the development of a special unit, or area of special expertise or lengthy involvement in a clinical area which has earned the respect of colleagues and/or publications. Work performed partly in Australia/New Zealand and partly elsewhere is acceptable. Previous recipients of the Award will not be eligible to receive the Award on a further occasion.
The Ian Simpson Award is given by nomination only. Nominations may be made by any two Fellows of the RANZCP, setting out their reasons for such nomination.
