Keynote Speakers

Professor Chris Kenedi

Professor Chris Kenedi trained at Duke University Medical Center in internal medicine and psychiatry. His family came to New Zealand for 3 years (10 years ago). Duke appears not to have noticed and he retains a faculty position there as an Asst. Professor of both Departments of Medicine and Psychiatry.

At Auckland Hospital Chris is a General Medicine physician in the morning and a Liaison Psychiatrist in the afternoon. He is the medical advisor for the inpatient psychiatric hospital, and also works in HIV neuropsychiatry and clozapine toxicity management for the DHB and the coronial system.

He is the neuropsychiatric consultant for the Civil Aviation Authority of New Zealand, the UN Working Group on Aviation Mental Health, and recently spent his sabbatical with the British Civil Aviation Authority and the US Federal Aviation Authority. During the sabbatical he also trained in Hostage/Crisis Negotiation with the US FBI Academy (as a negotiator and not as a hostage).

He is the only non-European invited to the European Union working group on Somatoform Disorders as an honorary member and he assists ACC in Wellington with external review of patients with complex and somatoform disorders.

His research interests are:
Factitious and somatoform disorders.
Mental health in the aviation community.
Clozapine toxicity and prevention.

Diplomate of the American Board of Internal Medicine and the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology.
