Content Tracks, New Schedule for APA's 'Crown Jewel'

This APA meeting in New Orleans has a number of firsts. A number of the core elements of this year’s APA Annual Meeting started on Saturday prior to the opening session. The meeting adjourns Wednesday evening. This schedule creates a tightly packed five-day immersion into psychiatry.

Specific content tracks represent another new development. Two important tracks are the track engaging the National Institute for Drug Abuse and a number of presentations on the evolving development of the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. This track offers members an opportunity to learn about DSM5 and to provide input into its development.

As Mel Sabshin might have said, it's a great start to APA’s Crown Jewel—the Annual Meeting.
