Congratulations to A/Prof William Tam – new AMA(SA) President

ACMA would like to congratulate committee member and former ACMA President A/Prof William Tam on his successful election as AMA(SA) President.

He took over from Dr Janice Fletcher as of the AMA(SA)’s annual Charity Gala Dinner on Saturday 13 May (photos below).

His role in the AMA(SA) Council goes as far back as 2012, and he had previously served as the representative for Physicians, AMA(SA) Executive Board member and as Vice President.

He graduated from Adelaide University in 1993, and did his fellowship in Middlesex Hospital (London), receiving an honorary lectureship at the University of London. His PhD was on reflux disease and Barrett’s oesophagus. He learned advance endoscopic techniques in Tokyo and Amsterdam, and is proficient in EUS and ERCP. He received his Fellowship from the Royal Australasian College of Physicians in 2000. In 2012, he was awarded honorary professorship at the Beijing PLA General Military Hospital.

He received his Associate Professorship at University of Adelaide and continues to be active in clinical research, teaching and endoscopic training, and has participated in the World Gastroenterology Organisation sponsored teaching program in Fiji. He has received grants from CSIRO, Cancer Council and NHMRC.

He is a state reference member for the Australian National Bowel Cancer Screening Program, an Executive Committee member of the Australia & New Zealand Endoscopy Leaders Forum, and is chair-elect of the Australian Gastrointestinal Endoscopy Association.

Clinically, he works as an gastroenterologist and interventional endoscopist at the Royal Adelaide Hospital, Lyell McEwin Hospital, Calvary Hospital and Northern Endoscopy Centre. He has provided outreach specialist services to Broken Hill and Kangaroo Island as well.

A/Prof Tam has been a longstanding member of ACMA, having joined as a student and has held the posts of President, Treasurer, and Education portfolios, organising the ACMA ASM since 2006.

Please join us in heartily congratulating A/Prof William Tam!
