Theme : Advances in Brain Medicine

This 2 day course in Neuro-psychopharmacology has been designed as both an introductory course for non-psychiatric specialists and as a refresher course for psychiatrists. It will cover important brain medicine topics involving mood and cognitive function. The course is highly interactive and is not designed as a long series of passive didactic lectures. Participants are expected to be challenged by the experienced educators and to contribute both in class and in group case analysis. This emotionally challenging interactive format has proven to be highly effective for the participants, in aiding their internalization of the many important recent advances in brain disorder medicine.
