Annual Meeting


Theme: "The Educator's Compass: Navigating the Changing Landscape of Adademic Psychiatry"

The landscape of academic psychiatry is changing.  Over the past several years, psychiatric educators have experienced the introduction of new milestones and entrustable professional activities, an overwhelming (and almost unmanageable) number of applications for our residency programs, an increasing recognition of the magnitude of burnout in ourselves and our trainees, and changes in the delivery of healthcare. These changes impact our approach to teaching, assessment, career and professional development, and recruitment to the field.  This year’s AAP annual meeting theme emphasizes academic psychiatrists’ role as leaders in finding innovative solutions and novel approaches for these challenges.  I hope you will be inspired to share the amazing work you are doing at each of your institutions with your colleagues when we come together in the fall for our annual meeting in Milwaukee, Wisconsin!  For those of you who have never ventured to Milwaukee, I encourage you to check out all this amazing city has to offer – from local craft breweries to amazing museums to a three mile RiverWalk with shopping and dining (and more!), there is much to explore, and you may want to consider taking advantage of the Labor Day holiday immediately preceding the meeting for a getaway with friends or family.  I look forward to seeing you all in Milwaukee!

Our Objective

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.
