Exciting things are happening at American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry’s (AAAP) 30th Annual Meeting and Scientific Symposium this year in San Diego, CA. AAAP is offering two Pre-Conference courses: Advanced Addiction Psychopharmacology, and Addictions and Their Treatment. These two courses will immerse you into a world of clinical knowledge that will help you improve your patients’ care.
The Advanced Addiction Psychopharmacology course will take place on Wednesday, December 4 from 8:00 am – 5:30 pm and Thursday, December 5 from 8:00 am – 12:15 pm. This intensive two-day, 12-hour course is designed for physicians, NPs, and PAs who have a foundation in prescribing medication for patients with substance use disorders but would like a deeper understanding of these pharmacologies. The course will be approached as a didactic lecture with equal time for peer discussion and questions and answers.
The Addictions and Their Treatment course will take place on Tuesday, December 3, from 8:00 am – 5:50 pm; Wednesday, December 4, from 8:15 am – 5:40 pm; and Thursday, December 5th from 7:00 am – 12:25 pm. This course provides a comprehensive overview of the current research and clinical practices in preventing, identifying, and treating substance use disorders and co-occurring mental disorders. It is recommended for PGY-V residents, general psychiatry residents, and periodically for all academic and treatment personnel to stay updated on the most recent trends in the addiction field. Participants will find that course material is equally relevant to junior faculty and all clinicians as well as experienced practitioners and other health professionals. This activity was planned by and for the healthcare team.
If those pre-conference courses aren’t enough, AAAP will hold its 30th Annual Meeting and Scientific Symposium from December 5 – December 8. We will showcase five Symposia with topics ranging from treating youth with OUD to cannabis policies.
