In early 2020, Suzanne Caragianis and Dr Tim Proudman worked with the Royal Government of Bhutan, Ministry of Health, to negotiate the training of Bhutan’s first Plastic Surgeon, Dr Sonam Jamtsho. Suzanne has had weekly contact (online) with patients, therapy staff and surgeons.

Suzanne Caragianis returned from another very successful trip to Bhutan with Interplast Australia and New Zealand in October 2019. The team provided teaching to 10 local therapists and also ran practical sessions and tutorials, provided donated equipment and met the new Minister of Health.
We had another very fruitful trip to Bhutan from April to May 2018 with a focus on continuing education. We ran our first new course to 88 participants across 2 locations. $15k donations went to patients, the Bhutan clinic and supporting a Bhutan therapist. Suzanne was also honoured with an award!
