“Integrated health care is the new gold standard for individuals with general medical and mental disorders, whether their ‘medical home’ is a primary care clinic or a community mental health center,” according to a recent article by Thomas Smith, M.D., and colleagues. This year’s annual meeting in New York is offering a truly remarkable educational opportunity to get you prepared, with over 20 presentations in an Integrated Care Track that covers the full spectrum of collaboration presented by experts from across the field. In addition, there
are several presentations on workforce development, particularly for residency training, occurring on Saturday, Sunday, and Tuesday.
These are just some of the highlights of the Integrated Care Track; it will provide unique skills to meet APA President Jeffrey Lieberman’s hope to “change the practice and perception of psychiatry.”
