Abstract submissions for CACAP's 34th Annual Conference will be accepted until March 7, 2014: https://www.xcdsystem.com/cacap/
Learning and Education in Child Psychiatry:
Crib to Classroom to Clinic
We aim to develop a broad program that will address the varied clinical, research, educational, and advocacy interests of our membership. Accepted submissions on topics related to Education and Advocacy may be sponsored by the Education Committee and the Advocacy Committee, respectively.
Five types of submission are available: Research Symposium, Academic Perspectives, Workshop, Special Interest Study Group, and Poster Presentation.
We especially want to encourage submissions from residents, who are eligible for Member-in-Training, best presentation and travel awards ($500 each). No separate award application is necessary.
Accepted submissions for oral and poster presentations will be short-listed for awards based on the submission materials. Please note that only CACAP Members and Members-in-Training are eligible for awards. Membership status must be confirmed by the time submission results are announced in May 2014.
