Academic Psychiatry Symposium for 2023: Call for Abstracts


APS2023 Abstracts Form

Abstract Submission Form Link


We are excited to announce that the annual Academic Psychiatry Symposium for 2023 will be held on Friday, June 16th, at Vanderbilt Psychiatric Hospital!

Abstract submission is now open for posters. You can also indicate your interest in giving a talk during one of the oral sessions. This form will provide formatting instructions and ask you to complete a few dropdown answers that will help us organize submissions.

Submissions from ALL walks of academic psychiatry are encouraged. These include (but are not limited to) empirical research, case reports, history of psychiatry, and theoretical approaches. Please note that there are no specific formatting requirements for the posters themselves. You are welcome to use previously shown posters or an entirely new one. We have also attached a clinical case report template to help those interested in presenting an interesting case but who may not be familiar with creating a poster presentation.

The theme for this year is Collaboration. Our invited panel of speakers will discuss their path for developing academic and community relationships that have enhanced the impact of their work. We will also structure our poster session to facilitate new relationships within our own department. Lunch and an afternoon treat will be served.

We look forward to seeing you!

The Academic Psychiatry Symposium planning committee
