Continuing Medical Education 2008

Venue: The Adelaide Clinic

Meetings for Psychiatrists and Allied Professionals

Ramsay Health Care, in collaboration with Pharmaceutical Company Sponsors, have great pleasure in inviting you to our continuing education program for 2008.

These meetings provide an excellent opportunity to keep up to date with the latest developments in psychiatry. The high quality of presentations continues, with leading experts talking about a wide range of topics.

There is also the opportunity to meet informally with the speaker over breakfast, and to join in the discussion following the presentation.

We hope you enjoy this series and we look forward to seeing you there each month. The program is designed to meet clinicians needs so please let me know if there are any topics you would like included in 2009.
