Education

education1An important part of AATP’s mission is education. We offer a number of opportunities to involve our members in educational activities through colleagues, collaborations with academia and industry, teaching residents and fellows and through meetings.

 

The AATP annual meeting is held in conjunction with the annual APA meeting and generally takes place on the first Saturday of APA week. The meeting varies from a half-day to a full- day based on the sessions and topics More details…
When possible, special AATP committee meetings take place in conjunction with other academic meetings such as AAP, AADPRT or ATA meetings
For the last decade or so, AATP has sponsored a half-day course on technology and psychiatry at the annual APA meeting. The course instructors are AATP members.
Each year at the annual APA meeting, several of our members have participated in symposia on ‘hot topics’ in psychiatry and technology
We are planning, special virtual workshops during the year with our members or invited guests as faculty.
When there is funding, we offer a year-long AATP fellowship. The fellow attends that annual meeting and presents a session or poster and works on a project for the rest of the year with one or two of our faculty members.
