Theme: "Bridging the Divide: Reducing Inequity Through Education"

Mental health is an integral part of overall health and is influenced by biological, psychological, and social factors.   Inequity and disparities impact the health of our patients and the population as a whole. As AAP educators we teach a variety of topics in psychiatry to a wide range of learners--undergraduate and medical students; residents and fellows; faculty and mental health providers; patients and communities. Topics include mental health care, mental health promotion, as well as advocacy, and leadership.  The breadth of issues and learners we encounter allows us a unique opportunity to raise awareness of inequity in medical education and mental health and in doing so, be part of the needed change to improve health and promote wellness at the individual and societal levels.       

This year’s Annual Meeting will be held virtually September 8 – 10, 2021. We are planning an exceptional educational and social program to bring everyone together. Whether participating in-person or virtually, AAP events are wonderful opportunities to meet new colleagues who share a passion for education.  Workshops showcase innovative educational strategies in teaching and career development. Please mark your calendars and plan to join us!

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.
