Damiaan Denys is the new chairman of the Dutch Association for Psychiatry (NVvP). During the spring conference in late March he takes over the current chairman, Aartjan Beekman. For the next three years Denys represents the profession and its members.
“Increasingly, I am concerned about the intrinsic qualities of the profession that get overshadowed by the many formal and administrative constraints,” said Denys. “As president I am looking forward to make a change in favor of the substantive creativity and clinical and scientific expertise.”
