The 2019 National Conference of APAHC will address the many clinical, research, training, and administrative topics pertinent to psychologists and other providers working in academic health centers. The theme for the Conference is Psychology on the Cutting Edge: Celebrating Psychologists’ Roles, Contributions, and Diversity in Academic Health Centers.

Keynote speakers include Darrell Kirch, MD, Bradley Karlin, PhD ABPP, and Jared Skillings, PhD ABPP. Dr. Kirch is the President and CEO of the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) and will give an address on the influence of academic medicine on leading change across multiple platforms, such as medical education, research, and patient care. Dr. Karlin is vice president and chief of mental health and aging at Education Development Center, working with public and private health care systems to promote the dissemination and delivery of evidence-based psychological treatments and to improve mental health and dementia care for older adults. He will give an address on dissemination and implementation of evidence-based psychological treatments in health care. Dr. Skillings is chief of professional practice of the American Psychological Association, which is responsible for promoting the practice of psychology and the availability of behavioral health services through federal and state legislative advocacy, legal and regulatory initiatives, and public education. He will give an address on professional practice and his experiences in this role at APA. Additional speakers and panels will address important topics such as diversity, the health service psychology workforce, policy and integration, transgender health, and models of integration of psychologists in academic medicine.

The Conference is a great opportunity to learn a range of skills valuable to functioning as a psychologist in an academic health center, meet new colleagues, and reconnect with old colleagues. We also encourage providers of other professions to attend to continue and grow collaborations.

We look forward to seeing you in New Orleans!
