Dr Guerin was the convener of the inaugural trainee meeting held in Adelaide in 1990. He was a great contributor to the OHNS specialty and a dedicated teacher who promoted the specialty both locally and internationally. Dr Guerin's list of accomplishments was long and impressive. He obtained Fellowships to both the Edinburgh and English Royal College of Surgeons as well as the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons. His training included appointments at St Mary's Hospital, London and Radcliffe Infirmary in Oxford.
In 2003 the Council of ASOHNS named the Annual Registrars Conference in acknowledgement of the valuable contributions made by Dr Guerin in establishing and developing the conference.
