2021-2022 AAP Virtual* Education Program (VEP) Series
*This will be a live (not pre-recorded) virtual session, conducted via the Zoom application. All presenters will be expected to be able to use the Zoom application and have a functional webcam and audio setup. AAP is not able to provide technical or program support for these hardware or software requirements. AAP will create and distribute a Zoom meeting link for the session; presenters who prefer to use their own Zoom accounts may create the scheduled session and provide the link to AAP, which will be distributed to scheduled attendees. Sessions will not be recorded, but presenters may be asked to make slides or other enduring materials available to attendees.
The Virtual Education Program Planning Committee is seeking abstract submissions for seven (7) individual monthly educational sessions related to the chosen program theme.
Submission Deadline: May 31, 2021, 11:59pm, PST
The hallmark of an effective workshop is interaction, and this is even more essential in a virtual setting. Workshop participants must have enough time to practice the knowledge, skills, and attitudes discussed, and to receive appropriate feedback (e.g., in small/breakout groups). Core workshop categories include:
- Leadership/Administrative Development
- Career Development (early, mid, and late)
- Curriculum Development
- Competencies (including Cultural Competency and Lifelong Learning)
- Diversity and Inclusivity
Program Theme: Lumos, Reducto, Reparo: Transfiguring Psychiatric Education in a Post-Pandemic World
In the wizarding world of Harry Potter (spoiler alert!) He Who Shall Not Be Named spread chaos and destruction. While the Dark Lord and his Death Eaters were vanquished, Hogwarts was turned into rubble. In our muggle world, COVID-19 has significantly affected all aspects of our lives. As we recalibrate from the pandemic, academic psychiatry will undoubtedly incur permanent changes. Telepsychiatry, virtual interviews, and online learning are here to stay. Like the phoenix Fawkes, academic psychiatry is rising from the ashes as we channel our growth mindset, refusing to return to the past. As such, we will continue collaborating with each other, promoting scholarship, and educating our colleagues, trainees, and patients in this post-pandemic environment.
We invite you to submit workshops that are 60 minutes of interactive educational content. Please plan for up to an additional 30 minutes of Q & A.
