Academy President James Rundell, MD, FACLP, has chosen the meeting theme, Branding C-L Psychiatry: Defining the Breadth and Depth of Our Subspecialty.
Clinicians in consultation-liaison psychiatry face a wide breadth of conundrums and controversies in all areas of practice. Our objective for this meeting is to highlight the subspecialties within our subspecialty! Our program this year touches not only on the nuances of the multiple subspecialties within C-L psychiatry, but also will review information imperative for any practicing C-L psychiatrist. You will see that several sessions and events are exclusive to members, and fees overall are heavily discounted for members – consider joining today!
At last year's annual meeting, an attendee commented his surprise at my attendance at a session highlighting updates in psycho-oncology. As a perinatal psychiatrist, I see very few patients with primary oncologic diagnoses, however, I view the annual meeting as a forum to update my knowledge base about other subspecialties and hope that other attendees can do the same.
Here's just a sample of what you'll experience at this year's meeting:
Six TED-style plenaries by experts who will get straight to the point exploring clinical issues (geriatric, neuropsychiatry, child and adolescent) and timely administrative, education, and research topics
Two special half-day research forums: Maintaining Your Momentum with Your Research, 1:00-5:00 PM, Tuesday, Nov. 13, members only; and Getting Started with Research, 8:00AM - 12:00 PM, Wednesday, Nov. 14. Both sessions are free; the Tuesday session will include CME
Maximizing Mentorship Relationships Throughout Our Careers, a special evening session on Wednesday, Nov. 14, for members only, that will aim to enhance mentoring relationships – both giving and receiving mentorship.
145+ scientific posters; 42 oral papers; 77 General Sessions
Over 39 hours of CME credit available
More networking time and social events to build your connections with C-L professionals: no-presentation lunches, the ever-popular members’ welcome reception, and a champagne toast reception on Friday celebrating the Academy’s award winners
We look forward to your participation in this challenging and involving program.
