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.
