September 5-8, 2018

Onsite Information - Meeting Details

Pfister Hotel
Milwaukee, Wisconsin


Theme: The Educator’s Compass: Navigating the Changing Landscape of Academic Psychiatry


Hotel Reservations link is now available (see below).

Registration is now available (see below).   

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.
