2024 Brain Conference

May 4

The 2014 BRAIN Conference coincided with the launch of the National Neuroscience Curriculum Initiative (www.nncionline.org). As a day-long conference prior to the annual meeting of the American Association of Directors of Psychiatric Residency Training (AADPRT), our initial focus was to develop and disseminate a set of educational resources for effectively teaching neuroscience to psychiatry residents. Our broader goal was to enable psychiatrists to integrate a modern neuroscience perspective into every facet of their clinical practice.

Over the past 10 years we’ve exceeded beyond our wildest expectations. Along the way our mission has evolved: shifting from teaching in the classroom to clinical settings; reaching out to a broader audience including medical students, attendings across specialties, non-physician professionals, and the lay public; and reimagining how to leverage technology to expand our impact.

We are excited to bring back an in-person one-day BRAIN Conference on Saturday, May 4th in collaboration with the Columbia Department of Psychiatry and coinciding with the start of the annual meeting of the American Psychiatric Association in New York. Through large and small group sessions, attendees will receive training in various creative approaches to teaching neuroscience relevant to psychiatry through technology, online resources, and flipped classroom exercises. Participants will also learn methods to incorporate a neuroscience perspective into clinical care through case discussions.

If you have attended a BRAIN Conference before, we’re excited to welcome you back and share new educational resources and approaches. If you’ve never attended a BRAIN Conference before, we’re excited to have an opportunity to introduce you to the NNCI and share an exciting and fun day with you. We hope you will join us!  Click here to register.
