still not convinced?
The Child and Adolescent MasterPsych Conference differs from all other psychiatric conferences by being powerfully practical. Sure, our faculty members are up-to-date on the latest research, but the difference is they are not shy about giving actionable guidance on how to manage difficult patient cases. I get frustrated when listening to speakers who can quote research findings all day long, but won’t answer clinical questions with other than generic platitudes.
Since the Child and Adolescent MasterPsych Conference has a better-than-money back guarantee, it’s not in my interest to make it sound better than it is. So, I can say to you with confidence: if you are a front line practitioner, you’ll leave the conference with actionable guidance that will increase your level of confidence and competence. You’ll feel better about your job because you will have gained a higher level of mastery over challenging situations. That’s what effective learning is all about. So, please plan on joining us.
Who should attend
The Child and Adolescent MasterPsych Conference is a powerful learning opportunity for any mental health professional on the front lines of patient care who wants actionable advice on managing patient challenges. Our faculty members address your questions and case scenarios, making use of all interventions available, be they pharmacologic, psychotherapeutic, social, or interpersonal. So, psychiatrists, other physicians, psychologists, therapists, nurses, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants will all benefit. The Child and Adolescent MasterPsych Conference keeps it real.
Take care. And please plan on joining us.

Read What Your Colleagues Are Saying About This Course
If you were looking for a high-yield clinically applicable seminar – the Master CAMP is the course for you! Not having the time to read all the latest studies, this conference has leaders in the field condense and present findings that will directly affect my practice. Wonderful!
Leah Cobb, Harrogate, TN
The conference and speakers were excellent. I am completely satisfied.
Andre Fernandez, Lexington, KY
This is the second time attending your conference. On both occasions, I have found the lectures to be relevant, up-to-date, and practical. I appreciate your attention to feedback and engagement with the physicians in attendance.
Aileen Oandasu, Johnstown, PA
I enjoyed very much the welcome reception and the raffle. I did both my Boards training with you and this is the first time I participated in a nice party to meet and interact with colleagues.
Marilena A. Jennings, Bronx, NY
I highly appreciate the opportunity to attend the API conferences. I am in private practice and I often miss a treatment team or a face-to-face discussion about my patients. These conferences have replaced this gap and they have provided good feedback about my professional trajectory.
Ioana N. Shirley, Birmingham, AL
Dr. Krasuski was really helpful and amusing. I learned a lot about treating kids abusing marijuana. It was helpful to have cases on DMDD – so thank you! Dr. Bostic was point-on in his lecture and updated me on some other medications today in autistic kids – thanks!
Karen Senese, Toms River, NJ
For those of us who are early risers, the starting and ending time of the lectures is excellent!! Please don’t change it. The ending time (3 p.m.) allows the participant to enjoy the “hosting” city.
Lourdes J. Delgado, Peoria, IL
As a foreign medical graduate, I took my Boards in gen. psychiatry and C/A one time each in doing courses with API. Courses provide excellent preparation for board purposes and clinical practices.
I am an Adult Psychiatrist who took this course so I can provide some coverage for our Pediatric psychiatrist when he is out. I really benefited and feel my time was well spent. It was a great review.
I enjoyed this conference. It was a great balance of empirical data and clinical experience. The speakers were very engaging and responsive to audience questions and opinions.
Excellent presenters, very useful and pleasant staff. The information was updated, concise and easy to understand. The location and accommodations were very good. I learned a lot and enjoyed myself!
Graciela M. Gonzalez
Conference ran on time, great job! Conference was relevant and speakers were engaging.
It was well paced, and relaxed and yet “so” met the need to deliver cutting edge research with tips to apply research into clinical practice. All the major studies were discussed in a short, focused way. Staff were helpful and I made some friends!!
Excellent conference. One of the best I have attended. This is my first conference with API but I will be attending again.
C. Pamela Lowe-Hoyte
Very practical info! I now have more meds in my awareness.
Wonderful speakers!!! I’m glad I attended the conference, I learned quite a bit to help treat my patients.
Carl T. Radcliff
This conference is helpful for adult psychiatrists who see adolescents, older than 16 years. The atmosphere at the conference is energizing and upbeat.
It seems that every detail was thought out from food and snacks provided to the welcome receptions. All the speakers were excellent and really appreciate the organization of the notes for future reference.
The conference provided a truly up to date review in a format that was well organized, and had very comfortable accommodations. I am planning to attend future conferences.
Marta E. Wild
Very helpful reviewing current studies and major points of research results. Both useful in everyday practice and board preparation.
Susan W. Jones
Excellent speakers, enough time for question and answer sessions, perfect amount of time for each lecture.
Glad I came and will plan to return.
Great speakers! Very informative and provided a lot of clinically useful advice and instruction.
The course is very well organized. The speakers are outstanding. I strongly recommend this conference.
The speakers are high caliber-very good presenters. The information is both cutting edge and pragmatic, and the level of the presentations is appropriate to an audience and physician specialists/sub specialists. The option to immediately be able to view the entire presentations online without missing anything is also greatly appreciated, especially if jet lag or tourism options make it hard to attend all of the talks.
Excellent AACAP quality level conference and speakers.
I found the lectures very helpful as it focuses on practical knowledge in addition to covering the specific key points that are important.
Excellent and well-organized course.
Your courses are very comprehensive and up to date, the faculty is excellent, and your staff is very helpful and friendly.
Extremely thorough and relevant to my clinical practice. Very well done and comprehensive. Enjoyed meeting colleagues from around the country that were child psychiatrists like me.
My first experience with API! I like the length of the classes usually twice as many in the same time course. Allows for absorption of material, we were able to ask questions. Plus basic excellent websites. Resources suggested were extremely helpful. I will be attending your board course (adult board then child) next year.
Excellent faculty; new information presented in a useful way.
Howard A Grick
The CAMP conference was not only very informative but also very enjoyable. The hotel was comfortable in an interesting location, opportunities to socialize and network and fun! Love the welcome reception with drinks, appetizers, music and pictures. Really appreciate restaurants and social attraction information as well. This is my second API conference; I look forward to future conferences.
Excellent. I learn the most from the question and answer time. The questions cover real life situations that we in the field “trenches” face frequently.
Thank you for the comprehensive master psychopharmacology conference in child and adolescent psychiatry. Great lectures, great staff, great service and would recommend highly for more practitioners.
Had a great time. Very informative conference. I made friends and enjoyed sightseeing/walking.
This is my 4th conference with API and I have not been disappointed with the quality of content, keep up the good work!
Very Relevant, precise, well organized, practical to every day practice, clear, clinically based, excellent faculty.
Bal Sharma, MD, Kansas City, KS
I can depend on quality educational experiences from American Physician Institute.
Jan Thompson, MD, Reno, NV
Your courses are always thorough and well organized.
Jan Thompson, MD, Reno, NV
This is my second course this year, first was preparation for recertification of geriatric psychiatry – which was an excellent review, short, precise and the test was a breeze after the review. This course is excellent review of psychopharmacology, right to the point and practical applications.
Kaplan Milana, MD, Hollywood, FL
This course was tremendously useful as more and more of our practical life as child psychiatrists revolves around medication management. I plan to make it an annual event.
George Cresswell, MD, Colorado Springs, CO
This is my second time attending this course. I am already looking forward to the next! There is no other course where you can really interact with Masters in their field from all over the nation – all grouped together a few days just for me to learn!
Maribel Rivera, MD, Coraopolis, PA
This is one of the best psychopharm conferences I have ever attended for basic child psychiatry. Depression and BPD was chock full of very useful information.
Adele Cox, MD, Wynnewood, PA
Clinically relevant and up-to-date. Will make an immediate difference in my practice.
Judith Arnold, MD, Manitowoc, WI
Well prepared, well presented, good visuals, plenty of opportunity for questions.
Arnold Samuels, MD, Evanston, IL
16 years in private practice, having maintained board certification, and regularly attending various educational reviews, I have been greatly impressed with the value in these relevant clinical courses. The vignettes and the evidence-based data were invaluable and well-presented.
Omar Rieche, MD, Fort Myers, FL
It is a good place to meet colleagues and discuss cases, get feedback and increase base resources as I go back to my practice.
Leah Perez, MD, Dunlap, IL
Great overview of conditions often encountered in child psychiatry and into evidence based treatments for them. Opportunity to network with providers from all over the USA and link to shared experiences and triumphs and failures to learn from each other.
Patricia Kinne, MD, Louisville, KY
They were extremely knowledgeable, with first-hand, up-to-date information. I’ve taken a few of your courses – some for board review preparation and some just for general knowledge – and I have really appreciated them and learned a lot.
Tracey Cornella-Carlson, MD, Hartland, WI
The information they are giving to us is also very practical – it’s the information that we need.
Jose Hernandez, MD, Tampa, FL
The speakers were the top in the field and yet no questions went unanswered, no statement was not addressed/discussed. Being educated by/with these masters was like jamming with Dizzy Gillespie and Miles Davis.
Herbert Cruz, MD, Fresno, CA
Precise, concise, clinically-based and practical.
Sarabjit Tokhie, MD, Okemos, MI
This course was a nice blend of contemporary knowledge, “real world” cases, and practical advice. The speakers were enthusiastic and engaging. There was ample time for questions and discussion. I highly recommend this course to any clinician who wishes to refresh their practice habits and enhance their professional skills.
Barry Irons, MD, Las Cruces, NM
Good evidence-based medicine.
Peter Warhol, MD, Peeven, SD
I find the course very informative and although the name of this is Psychopharmacology, it’s really reassuring that all the speakers emphasized the importance of psychosocial interventions as well.
Jacqueline Magrolagasca, MD, Union City, CA
Relevant, organized and great speakers.
Linda Lotspeich, MD, Stanford, CA
This is the third course I have taken from you. I found all of them valuable and effective in improving my practice and making me a better physician. In fact, to me, the quality of your courses is so much superior to those offered by the APA meeting that I no longer spend money on the APA meeting – I just do not like wasting my money!
Beth Milford, MD, Novato, CA
A very good review, brought me up to date on multiple topics in 3 days. Very well organized at a very gentle pace.
Harjot Singh, MD, Fresno, CA
This conference was a very positive, special experience in one of USA’s finest cities. I have added substantially to my knowledge of Psychopharmacology in Children/Adolescents, for which I am thankful. I’m hopeful that my new knowledge can help in this Managed Care dominated system. It could help if I teach or supervise clinicians in the future.
Larry Rosenthal, MD, Bethesda, MD
The course was very well organized and kept to stated done-times. Information presented was well-presented in slide format. All slides were included in the course handout, which allowed me to actually pay attention without the burden of having to take note. I found the information very relevant to practice. I appreciate the bonus lecture on arming yourself against medical malpractice and understanding the role of the relationship with patients and medical liability.
Diane Felder, MD, Houston, TX
Clear, concise and practical for everyday practice! Highly recommended!
Michelle Fontenelle-Gilmer, MD, Trenton, MI
I really liked Dr. Hardan’s lectures. He’s a very good speaker. He reviewed the subjects in a very practical way.

I am happy I attended the Child & Adolescent course.
Pabudini Muthukuda, MD, Gaithersborg, MD
Gave a rainbow spectrum of practical treatments. Catches your interest throughout the course – lively, never boring.
Judith Bautista, MD, Eagle River, AK
Well-organized, important topics were discussed. Excellent lectures of Dr. Radwan and Dr. Chang.
Ella Komatorsky, MD, Skokie, IL
My favorite portion had to do with the case discussions where the lecturer & audience shared their clinical ideas on how to treat the case. I could identify with the struggles in choosing the best treatment approach in the complicated cases. The smaller group setting (audience) was comfortable. The lecturers appeared to enjoy the Q&A and case discussions and were respectful of the physicians who may have had another point of view. Thank you!
Cynthia Dulay-Bruce, MD, Tracy, CA
Excellent review of psychopharmacology in Children & Adolescents. Geared towards the practicing Child Psychiatrist. It was very instructive to also hear about upcoming trials and directions in psychopharmacology.
Chris Lang, MD, Salt Lake, UT
I am very glad I came to this conference. A lot of useful and up-to-date information – well organized. Overall, high quality. Great location too! Great chance to meet colleagues.
Lisa Feierman, MD, Corrales, NM
Current information, clinically relevant to the private practitioner. There were many ‘pearls of wisdom’ that I will be able to incorporate in my practice.
Renee Mehlinger, MD, Chicago, IL
Great conference! Very practical review of important topics. I would highly recommend this course to all psychiatrists.
Geoff Levin, MD, Highland Park, IL

Steven Sonnek, MD, Victoria, MN
Excellent choice of faculty. Loved case discussions.
Gerald Chitters, MD, Boulder, CO
This was very pleasant, friendly and professional experience. I like the option to have a “second chance” to look over the lectures online.
Mariana Martinajevic, MD, Fort Lauderdale, FL
It was refreshing to take a course that was so free from commercial interest.
Evelyn Lopez-Brignoni, MD, Miami, FL
I have recommended your board preparation review courses to my colleagues, because I found them excellent when I took it, and it helped me to pass the adult boards. This course I will also recommend to everyone because I also found it very informative, useful, up-to-date – “Excellent.” Keep up the good work, Dr. Krasuski and staff.
Jose Hernandez, MD, Tampa, FL
This course provided very up-to-date, useful clinical practice guidelines used by leaders in the field, that spanned from screening tools to use in practice, new research on diagnosis and treatment, medication studies and indications as well as new medication trials in progress. Excellent speakers and all around excellent conference. Totally worth the time invested!
Jennifer Kurth, MD, Chicago, IL
