I am deeply honoured to be elected President of this world leading organisation that advocates for research, education and good practice in the psychiatric care of the medically ill - topics I have devoted my career to. In this role I shall be able to enrich our Department's already strong links to other leading research centres in the USA. - Professor Michael Sharpe, Department of Psychiatry, University of Oxford.
