Message from the President
Welcome to the Canadian Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry's website. CACAP is the national organization of Child and Adolescent psychiatrists in Canada. As an organization we are committed to advancing the mental health of children, youth and their families through the promotion of excellence in clinical care, advocacy, education, research and collaboration with other allied health professionals.
We are excited to have received official subspecialty recognition form the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and many of us are busy preparing to write the first Royal College examinations to be held in September 2013. To help members prepare for this subspecialty examination, the Academy is hosting a comprehensive review course in child and adolescent psychiatry in Toronto in July 2013. Further details can be found on this website.
Our Research and Scientific Program Committee, under the expert leadership of Drs. Daniel Gorman and Ashley Wazana, is busy preparing an exciting Annual Meeting in Vancouver in November 2013. I would encourage you to attend and participate at this informative event.
I would also highlight that CACAP is working together with the International Association of Child and Adolescent Psychiatrists and Allied Professionals (IACAPAP) to host a joint meeting in Calgary in September 2016. Regular updates on this event will be posted to this website.
This is a stimulating time to be a child and adolescent psychiatrist and the Academy looks forward to congratulating the first round of successful examination candidates in fall 2013!
