AAP Annual Meeting

2015 AAP Annual Meeting

September 16-19, Hyatt Regency San Antonio
San Antonio, Texas


AAP’s Annual Meeting is designed for psychiatrists who are interested in learning about academic development, teaching psychiatry, and research on psychiatry education. The meeting is filled with interactive workshops designed to teach a wide array of academic topics. “How To” sessions teach academic and leadership development, use of technology in teaching, resident and faculty teacher development, and a host of other topics in resident and medical student education. The meeting is a wonderful way to interact with academic psychiatrists and psychiatry leaders in a casual and inviting setting filled with accessible workshops, informal sharing, and academic mentoring. It is an ideal venue for residents and fellows to develop an interest in education, junior faculty to launch an education-based career, and senior faculty to expand their skills and meet colleagues from across the country.

NEW THIS YEAR: Educators' Showcase
A series of brief presentations designed to allow educators to demonstrate novel or innovative techniques and products used in medical student or residency training. Educators can present their ideas and receive feedback on ways to further improve them. The audience can expect to see tools and procedures that can be applied to their own programs. The goal of this workshop is to present material that contributes to the educational domain but does not require a full workshop. Examples might include brief curricula, specific innovative lectures or lecture techniques, media presentations, group learning activities, etc. Presenters will present for approximately 10-15 minutes; a presentation format will be provided to structure the presentations to stay within the time limit and allow for productive discussion.
