Join us for the 8th National Conference of the Association of Psychologists in Academic Health Centers

March 9-11, 2017 at the Westin Book Cadillac in Detroit, Michigan

The theme for the year's conference is "Promoting Psychology in the Evolving Healthcare Landscape: Enhancing the Well-being of Patients, Providers, and Populations"

The 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.

Keynote speakers include Katherine Nordal, Ph.D., Nancy Schlichting, MBA, and W. Douglas Tynan, Ph.D., ABPP. Dr. Nordal is the Executive Director of the APA Practice Directorate and will give an address on advocacy and the accessibility of psychology via healthcare systems. Ms. Schlichting is the CEO of Henry Ford Health System and Chairperson on the Commission on Care, formed to examine access to and delivery of care in the VHA, and will give an address on leadership in academic medicine and the impact on patient safety, provider well-being, and diversity. Dr. Tynan is the Director of Integrated Health Care at APA and Acting Director of the APA Center for Psychology and Health and will give an address on integrated mental and behavioral health services in healthcare settings. Additional speakers and panels will address important topics such as provider wellness, interprofessional education, training for and integrating into medical settings, leadership and quality initiatives in medical settings, ethics in medical settings, and Holistic CBT.

The Conference will include a poster session for faculty and trainees to showcase their research, clinical innovations, and training and education programs. A call for abstracts will be going out in early September.

Additionally, the ever popular and engaging Early Career Boot Camp for psychologists less than 10 years post-degree, will be offered on Thursday, March 9th. The APAHC Early Career Boot Camp is a biannual, day-long, interactive workshop intended for post-doctoral fellows and early career faculty/staff. Established leaders in the field participate in an interactive forum with early career psychologists and provide mentorship on important topics such as career advancement, salary negotiation and promotion, administrative and leadership challenges, and work-life balance. Members are encouraged to apply and 20-30 applicants are chosen for acceptance with no additional conference fee applied.

New this year will be the Mid-Career Boot Camp for those greater than 10 years post-degree! This boot camp will also be offered on Thursday, March 9th. The APAHC Mid-Career Boot Camp is a day-long, interactive workshop which will focus mid-career development with interactive discussions, personalized career planning, and transitional planning opportunities. Members are encouraged to apply and 20-30 applicants are chosen for acceptance with no additional conference fee applied.

Representatives from the APA Commission on Accreditation will be on hand to provide internship site visitor training and an internship self-study workshop on Thursday, March 9th.

Applications for both the Early Career and Mid-Career Boot Camps will open in the Fall – stay tuned for more information.
