Vignettes Presentations

The Planning Committee would like to encourage the residents of combined training programs to participate in a friendly competition at the AMP’s annual meeting in Chicago this fall (Friday, September 15th – Saturday, September 16th, 2017).  The Clinical Case Vignette Competition, in which residents present an interesting case that highlights medical –psychiatric overlap, has been a popular staple of the meeting for over 10 years.  The case presentation is to be no longer than 10 minutes and is followed by a very collegial 5 minutes of discussion.  In an attempt to encourage participation in this entertaining and education experience, the Executive Council has agreed to award the winning program’s residents free admission to the following year’s Annual Meeting’s opening night Reception and Dinner. Please consider submitting an abstract for this fun (and potentially rewarding) contest. The deadline to submit an abstract is July 1, 2017.
