Psychiatric News
Volume 47 Number 13 page 8-8

Surrounded by some of the most iconic sights in the nation’s struggle for independence, more than 10,000 psychiatrists and others came to APA’s 2012 annual meeting in Philadelphia to absorb the latest knowledge in every area of clinical care and mental illness research and to chat with psychiatry’s leading lights. Especially popular were the many sessions designed to prepare psychiatrists for changes on the horizon in the way they practice.

All of this was served up in a city renowned for its culinary delights, historic sites, and world-class museums, providing a bounty of activities from which attendees could choose.

APA’s next scientific meeting, the Institute on Psychiatric Services, will be held October 4 to 7 in one of APA’s most popular meeting cities—New York. It’s not too early to plan! inline-graphic-1.gif
