APA's 2005 Institute on Psychiatric Services (IPS) is an informal,
practical, and clinically focused multi-disciplinary meeting offering
excellent educational sessions and the opportunity to network with colleagues
from the United States and abroad.
The central gathering point for the meeting will be the Exhibit Hall, which
will be the site of morning coffee breaks and afternoon receptions. Commercial
and educational exhibitors will be available to discuss the latest products
and services for psychiatrists and mental health professionals. The APA Member
Center and APA Job Bank, along with pharmaceutical-product information, the
latest computer software, books, and other products, will be featured.
Registrants who visit the Exhibit Hall will have opportunities to win
prizes at both morning and afternoon drawings. The prizes this year, supported
by IVAX Pharmaceuticals, will include a color television, Palm Pilot, personal
copy machine, fax machine, cordless phone, DVD player, digital camera, video
camera, stereo, notebook computer, free registration for the 2006 APA annual
meeting in Toronto, Canada, and free registration for the 2006 institute in
New York City.
The exhibits will open at 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 6, and close at
noon on Saturday, October 8. Celebration Recovery, hosted by the Irwin
Foundation and APA (see article above), follows the close of the exhibits.▪
