‘Valuable supplement to C-L Psychiatry education at academic institutions’
CLP 2021 produced several outstanding workshops that could be a valuable supplement to C-L Psychiatry education at academic institutions. ACLP’s Online Education, Residency Education, and Medical Student Education Subcommittees completed an initial review of the education content from the conference and identified ones that were relevant and useful for medical students and residents.
Check out these and other CLP 2021 sessions that are freely available for review here on the ACLP website—and please promote them at your institutions!
