With the growing need for mental health treatment and the nation’s shortage of psychiatrists, psychiatrists today are being asked to see patients with conditions or in age groups they have not previously treated and for which they do not have subspecialty certification.  Whether you are in a rural area without an addiction specialist, or a general psychiatrist being asked to treat minors and geriatric patients, we will offer strategies in caring for those patients while at the same time managing your own risk.  Those with subspecialty training will also benefit from these risk management reminders.

Additionally, the program will address the topic of medical marijuana.  With the legalization of medical marijuana by many states (despite federal prohibition), psychiatrists are likely to be faced with requests to recommend/certify patients for its use.  As this is not typically part of training, you will need to be prepared to handle these requests and also to treat patients who may be using marijuana, whether facilitated by other providers or used recreationally (legally or illegally).

Finally, the course will close with a virtual poster contest, where videos of residents’ research posters will be presented and attendees will be asked to vote for the best poster.
