We are pleased to announce that the 15th annual NCHD Conference will take place on Friday, 23rd February 2024 in the Hilton Hotel, Kilmainham, Dublin 8.

The theme for this year’s conference is ‘#Trending’ with a particular focus on exploring topical themes in psychiatry relevant to trainees. 

On the day, plenary talks and workshops will explore this topic and attendees will have the opportunity to hear from some of our most experienced Consultants in Psychiatry, members of the CPsychI REFOCUS (Recovery Experience Forum of Carers and Users of Services), on a range of subjects including Gender Dysphoria, Personality Disorders, Functional Disorders,  Drug Trends as well as breakout sessions on career advice, examination preparation and getting into research.

It promises to be a very interesting and enjoyable NCHD Conference for 2024.

The CPsychI and the Trainee Committee look forward to seeing you there!
