Integrative Medicine at the Annual Meeting!
The next Annual Meeting of the American Psychiatric Association will be in New York, May 5-9, 2018.
Since 2012, the APA has had a track on Integrative Medicine (CAM). Conference attendees may find this track via the APA Meeting smartphone app. Older sessions from the pre-smartphone app era are listed below.
What are all of these different Scientific Session types? (See below...)
All APA Scientific Sessions provide CME credit.
Most of the Scientific Sessions are provided free with your registration. The exception to this is the "Course" (half-day or full day), which requires pre-registration at an additional cost. You can absolutely have a wonderful, educational conference experience without paying extra for a course.
COURSE – Need to sign up for these in advance, and at an additional cost. Most stringent criteria to be accepted by the APA. Duration- 4 hrs (for a “Half-Day Course”) or 6-8 hrs (for a “Full-Day Course”). Limited seating. Cost $140 - $375
SEMINAR – Second-most-stringent criteria to be accepted by the APA. Do not need to sign up for these in advance. Duration- 4 hrs. Speakers are Researchers.
SYMPOSIUM – Not as stringent criteria to be accepted by the APA, relative to an APA Course or Seminar. Duration – 2-3 hrs. Speakers are Researchers.
WORKSHOP – The least stringent (but still stringent!) criteria to be accepted by the APA. Duration- 90 min. Speakers are Master Clinicians.
