Psychiatric News asked several psychiatrists why they attend APA’s fall Institute on Psychiatric Services, being held October 10 to 14 in Orlando, Fla.
"I attend most IPS meetings for the focus on the chronic patient and community-based systems of care, which has always been my interest. . . . No other meeting provides so much content and networking opportunities."
David Cutler, M.D.
Director, Public Psychiatry Training Program, University of Oregon Health Sciences Center, Portland, Ore.
"As a former mental health administrator, and strong believer in advocacy for the public sector and for interdisciplinary collaboration, I find the institute both informative and restorative."
Nada Stotland, M.D.
Speaker, APA Assembly
The Institute on Psychiatric Services "offers a well-researched smorgasbord for psychiatrists who deal with chronic and persistent mental illness. . . . An opportunity to learn in a more intimate format."
Elizabeth Galton, M.D.
Private practitioner in Santa Monica, Calif., and Assembly representative from the Southern California Psychiatric Society
"Simply the most enjoyable, useful, and relevant national psychiatric meeting—APA’s hidden jewel—cozy, accessible, far more interactive and far more focused on the clinical and system issues that are the core of my identify as a psychiatrist."
Stephen M. Goldfinger, M.D.
Professor and Vice Chair, Department of Psychiatry, S.U.N.Y Downstate Medical Center, Brooklyn, N.Y.
"I attend to learn about cutting-edge programs and treatments that are expanding access and improving quality of care for my patients. The pace allows for more dialogue with colleagues who are frontline pioneers."
Richard Harding, M.D.
APA President ▪
