AAP Annual Meeting


AAP 2016 AAP Annual Meeting
September 21-24, InterContinental San Juan

San Juan, Puerto Rico


Registration is OPEN!  Thank you for your patience.

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. 

Come and check it out!

Theme: Popular Culture, Popular Teachers: Mass Media in Psychiatric Education​
Educators in psychiatry have long turned to film, television, literature, and art to illustrate both broad and focused concepts that may be otherwise difficult to encapsulate for our learners.  These media have also drawn heavily on themes pertinent to psychiatry with processes of psychotherapy and neurobiology becoming more and more commonplace.  More recent rapid advances in technology have made it easier to bring media into the classroom while allowing us to expand the reach of our educational offerings to a worldwide virtual audience.  This year's AAP theme will turn the spotlight onto this expanding and fascinating intersection of psychiatry and mass media.
