SAN ANTONIO — Psych Congress recently announced the launch of Elevate, a three-day conference featuring CME/CE-accredited educational sessions designed for early-career clinicians, according to a press release issued here.
The inaugural meeting will take place from March 3 to 5, 2017 in San Francisco.
“This educational offering has been created to fill a void in the field. Elevate is a real game changer for how mental health education is delivered, absorbed and activated — especially at a critical time when 1 in 5 American adults has a mental health condition and access to care remains limited,” Rakesh Jain, MD, MPH, co-chair of Psych Congress and steering committee member for Elevate, said in the release.
Elevate will allow young clinicians to increase their knowledge and advance their career by attending educational sessions uniquely tailored to emerging clinicians.
The conference is accredited by the North American Center for Continuing Education (NACCME) and will offer participants the opportunity to earn up to 15.5 CME/CE credits.
“This meeting will focus on outcomes — what will you do with the information once you’re back at the office? How will you interact with the entire mental health team? What new approaches will you consider when working with patients? We don’t just want to educate, we want to change behavior and transform the future of mental health — the statistics demand it. A key way to accomplish this is to begin with the future leaders of our field,” Jain said.
