Member Recognition

Two of our Members were recognised in the 2023 ANZCA Council Awards.

(The ANZCA Council Awards recognise excellence and contributions by individuals and departments whether in large city health services, private practice, rural and remote settings or overseas.)

ANZCA Medal – Dr Allan Cyna (SA)

Allan’s significant and lasting contributions to the college can be demonstrated by his dedication, research and education in the use of hypnotic communication to enhance patient experience. He has also expanded his research beyond anaesthetics to multiple disciplines in medicine.

(The ANZCA Medal recognises major contributions by fellows to the status of anaesthesia, intensive care, pain medicine or related specialties.)

ANZCA Council Citation – Dr Indu Kapoor (NZ)

Indu’s significant and lasting contributions to the college can be demonstrated by her contribution to the advancement of paediatric anaesthesia in New Zealand and as the chair and founding member of the Paediatric Anaesthesia Network of New Zealand (PANNZ). In addition, her successful running of PACMAC and the start-up of IS-PACMAC is commendable.

(The ANZCA Council Citation is awarded to fellows in recognition of significant contributions to activities of the college.)
