European Union of Medical Specialists – activities of the Section and Board of Psychiatry

  • Joseph Saliba (a1) and Cornelius Katona (a2)
Extract

The European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS) was set up on 20 July 1958, 16 months after the Treaty of Rome was signed. In 1962, the UEMS Section of Psychiatry was established. It was, however, relatively inactive until it was revitalised following a meeting of the European Societies in 1990 called by the Royal College of Psychiatrists and chaired by Dr (now Dame) Fiona Caldicott. The UEMS Board of Psychiatry was established in 1992 as a working group of the Section with a particular focus on training matters. The Section is currently chaired by Dr Anne Lindhardt (Denmark) and the Board is chaired by Professor Manuel Gomez-Beneyto (Spain). Both Section and Board meet twice a year.
