Congress 2010

Held at the SkyCity Convention Centre in Auckland, New Zealand from 2–6 May, the theme of Congress 2010 was 'A Shared Endeavour'.

Following a great series of workshops on the Sunday, we commenced with a whakatau and blessing from Ngati Whatua. Our initial keynote addresses really set the theme of the public place of psychiatry. This meshed well with our opportunity to celebrate the knighthood of Professor Sir Mason Durie and the Australian of the Year, Professor Patrick McGorry.

As the Congress progressed, themes of biological, pharmacological and therapeutic topics became prominent. It was lovely to see all the trainees and a large cohort of medical students participating also. We were honoured by the overseas guests and the many Fellows and award winners from the whanau whanui [wider family] of the College.
