Kolkata, July 7: Recently, Dr. Baidyanath Ghosh Dastidar, of Calcutta National Medical College, from Kolkata, has been nominated for the ACAMH awards by the Association for Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. Dr. Dastidar has been nominated for the postgraduate trainee category in the ACAMH Awards, which is known as the most prestigious international award for Child and Adolescent Psychiatry trainees.
ACAMH awards recognize high-quality work in evidence-based science (for both publication and practice) in the field of child and adolescent mental health.
Dr. Dastidar was also awarded the WPA fellowship award in 2021 by the World Psychiatric Association, which is recognized as the highest award for Early Career Psychiatrists.
Dr. Baidyanath Ghosh Dastidar is currently working at the Calcutta National Medical College and will commence specialty training at Norfolk University NHS Trust of the United Kingdom. Talking about this immense honor, Dr. Dastidar said, “Being nominated for the ACAMH awards is a big honor for me. Personally, education, research and training of child & adolescent psychiatrists are critical. Awareness about the topics related to adolescent mental health ensures every child gets access to medical care. Greater research is needed in areas such as ADHD, Autism and mental retardation. There is a need for greater funding for CAMS Psychiatry.
I’m honored to have been recognized for such a premium award; it shows how hard work pays off. I will consistently work for the betterment of Paediatric psychiatry .”
