Iowa Psychiatric Society Annual Fall Meeting 2011

The link above takes you to a pdf file of the brochure for the annual Fall Iowa Psychiatric Society conference, which is being held October 7- in Iowa City, Iowa at the Holiday Inn Hotel and Conference Center, 1220 1st Ave in Coralville, Iowa. The title of the program is “Medical Aspects of Mental Health Practice: Essential Updates”. The brainchild of the program was one of our resident physicians, Dr. Erik Vanderlip.

Highlights include cutting edge presentations about the metabolic complications of mental illness, endocrinology for psychiatrists, hepatology in psychiatric practice, among others as well as the “hot topic”, American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology Psychiatry Maintenance of Certification Program (MOC). Just type in MOC or Performance in Practice (PIP) in the search box on my blog site to find what I’ve posted so far about it.

Don’t you know I wish I could break away to be there! I’m scheduled on service as usual and I hope everyone enjoys the meeting. Maybe someone will bring me back some tidbits about the MOC.
