Program Administrator Symposium

Wednesday, March 4 - Saturday, March 7, 2020

Hilton Anatole
Dallas, TX

AADPRT is one of the first organizations that has been a strong advocate for the position that supports psychiatry residency programs. Over the past several years, this select group of folks (regardless of our title) have presented many psychiatry specific topics which not only help with various issues in our jobs, but in many cases give a new perspective on an “age old” problem.

We Know You “Talk….”because you talk with each other when you attend this conference...and when you email…and even on the phone. And have you mentioned anything to others about how you handle a particular issue? Have you found a solution that works for you and your program?

It’s Your Time Now.…What better way to share than with your peers?


As part of this year’s program, we are seeking proposals for 45-minute workshop abstracts and 5-minute tips given on topics of interest to program administrators. Subjects from the past ranged from resident interaction, the milestone project, and professional development, but we are open to your new ideas. Presentations may have one or more presenters or coordinate an interactive group where everyone plays a part. Here’s another thought…is there something you and your Program Director would like to share? The only thing that limits you is yourself!

The deadline for presentation submission is Thursday, October 29, 2019. Submissions are reviewed for educational value, audience appeal, topic diversity, and innovation. All submissions must include educational objectives. We will let you know the status of your submission by Monday, November 18, 2019.
