Unique, Interactive Learning Forums

Reinforce, apply, and expand your knowledge of depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, psychosis, and pain using the unique, proven educational methods established and popularized by our Psychopharmacology Certification Program.

First, attend refresher seminars focusing on the neural substrates of depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, psychoses, and pain. Under the tutelage of dynamic and engaging faculty, these visually engaging and interactive didactic sessions will lay the foundation for exploring special topics and advanced issues within each track.
Meet the experts who will help you acquire the information you need to treat your most challenging cases.
Explore treatment advances and other topics on the cutting edge of research that will impact your practice in the not-too-distant future.
Participate in a live, interactive Psychopharmadrama (at an industry-sponsored dinner theater) designed to teach you simple diagnostic techniques that you can apply to your practice immediately.
Enjoy a lecture/performance by Richard Kogan, MD, a frequent chamber music collaborator with cellist Yo-yo Ma, a distinguished psychiatrist, and the Director of the Human Sexuality Program at the Weill-Cornell Medical Center. Explore how the medical and psychiatric illnesses of the great composers influenced their creative output. As part of this lecture/performance, Dr. Kogan will take you through a hypothetical discussion on how modern-day drug treatments would have affected the behaviors of these great composers.
