Psych Congress is the ideal conference for PAs who care for patients battling mental illness on a daily basis, as well as those who are new to the field of mental health care. Psych Congress can even help PAs interested in earning a Certificate of Added Qualifications (CAQ) in Psychiatry.
Earning a CAQ in Psychiatry shows both employers and patients that you have advanced expertise in Psychiatry and that you are dedicated to your specialty.
Here’s how Psych Congress can help you achieve your Psychiatry CAQ:
Our Maximum Credit Package provides you with access to nearly 70 CME/CE hours* of psychiatric education in just ONE year. Attend our meeting two years in a row and you are well on your way to exceeding your CME requirement.
If you aren’t already employed in a psychiatric practice, you may be unsure of where to start your search for a new job. Psych Congress offers a unique opportunity for you to network with over 2,000 mental health professionals from around the country. You will be sitting side-by-side with professors, clinical instructors, medical directors and more during comprehensive sessions throughout the conference. Connections you make here could lead to employment opportunities in the future!
Psych Congress and the Association of Physician Assistants in Psychiatry are dedicated to providing the best education to PAs, and providing them the tools they need in order to have a more successful and fulfilling career. Our Exhibit Hall also includes over 100 different exhibitors, including recruiters, hospitals, behavioral health centers, industry, and other organizations that can also provide additional education and opportunities on psych-related career paths.
