PROFESSOR LAWRENCE BEILIN
DR DAVID BRENDER
On returning to Sydney from overseas in 1970 I was appointed a physician in the Department of Cardiovascular Medicine at Prince Henry and Prince of Wales Hospitals and in 1972 appointed visiting physician at the Royal Hospital for Women, then on the Paddington campus. At the Royal my special interests were in the management of hypertensive disorders in pregnancy as well as maternal cardiac disease in pregnancy, especially adult congenital heart disease patients. I have continued my interest in these sub-specialties up to the present time.On resigning from the active staff of the above hospitals in 2005 I was appointed an Emeritus Consultant at both institutions and have continued in this capacity. I was a foundation member of ASSHP and served, at various times, on the executives of both the Federal and State Councils. I was also a foundation member of the Obstetric Medicine Society and have continued my involvement with these Societies following their amalgamation into SOMANZ. Membership of these Societies has facilitated and encouraged collaboration with clinical and research units here and overseas and contributed greatly to the advances we have made in the field of obstetric medicine. I am honoured to have been awarded Honorary Life Membership of SOMANZ, a vibrant society which has taken its place in and contributed significantly to the international obstetric medicine community, and I look forward to my continuing association with my peers.
