The Florida Psychiatric Society (FPS) held its Spring CME meeting April 8th – 10th at the Wyndham Grand Orlando Resort, Bonnet Creek in Orlando, FL. The University of Florida, Department of Psychiatry Residency Training Program held their Annual Resident/Fellow Retreat on April 9th at the same location.
Several of our faculty and staff members were speakers and facilitators at the event. Courtesy Assistant Professor and Director of Drug Policy at UF, Kevin Sabet, PhD kicked off the meeting with a CME talk on Medical Marijuana and Drug Policy while Regina Bussing, MD, Professor and Interim Chair of the UF Department of Psychiatry rounded out the meeting with a talk on Quality Measures in Psychiatry. Residency Training Director, Jacqueline Hobbs, MD and Clinical Program Coordinator, Genevieve Camp facilitated Yoga Nidra sessions during the meeting.
Thanks to all who attended the FPS Meeting and Resident/Fellow Retreat this weekend. Feedback on the CME meeting has been very positive. Our resident/fellow retreat focused on leadership development and included a lunch training session with both didactic and small group sessions. We also had Leadership Huddles throughout the FPS meeting to work on reinforcing the things learned during the lunch session. It was really great to have everyone there to participate and spend some time together away from work. Thanks to those of you who stayed behind to take call! We have videotaped the sessions and will make them available to those who missed them via New Innovations.
Special thanks and recognition to Cristin Owens, Assistant Director of Housestaff Affairs, for presenting the leadership development training!
I would also like to take this opportunity to invite everyone to take advantage of the wonderful benefits of FPS and the CME meetings that are happening right here in our own backyard.
