Virtual Series - Part 3: Advocacy 101

3/11/2021 6:30:00 PM

Psychiatry Outside of Clinical Practice


Many psychiatrists receive little, if any, training on the business aspects of psychiatric practice during their residency.  This educational series is designed to provide useful knowledge across a range of career needs, from early practice to closing a practice. We welcome all members to attend any sessions that strike their interest.
