Ten applications for the Orations were received this year and these were evaluated by 23 of the 36 Central Supervisory Committee and Academy members who were sent the evaluation forms. The structured criteria for evaluation included the quality of the topic, work experience in the field, publications and presentations, and contribution to the specialty. The scores were tabulated by the Academy Chairperson with the help of the Academy Convener.
