It's Showcase time! We hope you will join us on October 12, 2017 when the University of Pittsburgh Department of Psychiatry and Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic of UPMC host the Sixth Annual Clinician Educator Showcase.  This event will take place at WPIC in the auditorium and second floor classrooms.  Continuing education credits will be available.

We invite you to download a program schedule and register today.  Faculty, clinicians, staff, residents, medical students, and psychology interns in the Department of Psychiatry and our colleagues in the WPIC community are encouraged to attend. Continuing education credits will be offered.

The Showcase features interactive plenary and breakout sessions where you can learn and share information on a variety of topics and presentations by a select group of psychiatry residents on their innovative projects to enhance medical education and clinical care. The event also provides plenty of opportunities to network and reconnect with colleagues. We will also celebrate the outstanding accomplishments of our clinician educators and staff. Lunch will be provided for all registrants and light refreshments will be served during the afternoon break.
