Message from the President
Dear Fellows, Members and Colleagues,
Welcome to the Autumn Edition of the Australasian College of Aesthetic Medicine (ACAM) Newsletter.
At the Annual General Meeting held in November last year, there were some changes to the ACAM board. Dr Larissa Miller and Dr Larry Gahan were nominated and accepted as new board members. Congratulations to them and we look forward to their input in 2017. They replace Dr Paul Weaver from New Zealand and Dr Ben Chan from Melbourne. I would like to take the opportunity to thank Dr Weaver and Dr Chan for their contribution to ACAM, especially Dr Weaver for his support with the Certificate in Procedural Phlebology. Dr Jass Narulla has now retired as President after 4 years in this position and we thank him for his dedication and service to the College. I am very proud to assume the responsibility of President of the College.
My focus in 2017 is to further improve the ACAM academic program. This year we have 2 doctors on the Registrar Program and 61 doctors overall participating in the Diploma of Cosmetic Medicine.
At the recent 12th Laser and Cosmetic Medicine Conference held in the Hunter Valley in November, the ACAM Board worked closely with the development company Savv-e to bring the online training program closer to completion. We are excited to be bringing new aspects into the programme, including online videos and feedback questions for each tutorial.
Two Board members, Dr Naomi McCullum and Dr Larissa Miller have taken responsibility of the ACAM Facebook page and I encourage all members to place posts, ‘like’ and contribute to this page. Access can be made by: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1784037768497351/
This year the 13th Annual Laser and Cosmetic Conference will be held at the Crown Promenade Hotel in Melbourne from 11-12 November. The preliminary programme will be available on the website shortly. We are delighted to include such wonderful educators as Professor Rod Sinclair, Professor Dedee Murrell, Professor Greg Goodman and many others with topics ranging from non-surgical facial rejuvenation, hair grafting, melanoma and expert advice on managing dermal fillers. We also have presentations including the latest laser technology including Q switched YAG and Intense Pulsed Light. It will be an excellent program and must not be missed!
