WHY ATTEND THE MasterPsych 2019 Live Conference?
And What’s Your Favorite Reason?
Receive Real World Advice on Complex and Treatment Resistant Cases
Get actionable real-world guidance on managing treatment-resistant and otherwise complex cases. Submit your own difficult cases for incorporation into faculty presentations.
Earn 90 CME Credits | 24 Self-Assessment Credits | 1 PIP Unit
High quality CME that meets several years of requirements. And, for psychiatrists enrolled in the ABPN® MOC program, fulfill 3 years of all MOC requirements.
Get Two Tracks In One
Two parallel tracks over 4 days gives you greater choice. Move freely between tracks throughout the conference and also receive online recordings of ALL presentations to review at your leisure.
Obtain Unbiased Pharma-Free Education
We have no Pharma-sponsored presentations, activities, or meals. We do not have exhibitors and do not accept any Pharma grants. We believe in the wise use of medications, but prefer to have a commercial-free learning experience. Once you try it, you’ll see why and won’t want to go back to any other way of learning.
Relax | Recharge | Revitalize
Every caregiver needs respite. As clinicians we also need to take care of ourselves so we’re our best for our patients and families. The wellness-focused experiential learning will leave you feeling refreshed and clearer on your values and goals.
Have Fun | Build Community
Immerse yourself in a supportive community and attend fun group activities such as yoga class, ice-breaker reception, musical entertainment, activities for kids, raffles, after-hour career talks, guided imagery sessions, and more.
Reach the Career of Your Dreams
Let Dr. Jack lay out the foundational issues that lead clinicians either to burnout or a career of their dreams. In an extended evening session Dr. Jack leads a work-shop that details how to think about and plan a career that will sustain you – body, heart, and soul. A rich discussion included.
Take a Mini Vacation
Come alone, with your significant other, or the whole family. Add some days prior to or following the conference. Take a wine tour of area Vineyards – Yes, southern California is a wine-growing region. With kids, visit Legoland or the USS Midway aircraft carrier. More adventurous? Take a whale watching trip or visit the Catalina Island.
Start Your Studies Before the 2019 Conference
This year we’re adding an 8 hour Foundations of Psychopharmacology module that will be before the live conference. Sets a great foundation to what you learn at the conference itself.
Better Than Money-Back Guarantee
The MasterPsych Conference continues its famous tradition of the 100+100 Guarantee: If you are not satisfied with the conference for whatever reason, we will then refund 100% of your tuition and an additional $100 as our thank you for giving us a chance to serve you.
still not convinced?
The 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 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 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 MasterPsych Conference keeps it real.
Take care. And please plan on joining us.

“Finally, a course that combines up-to-date research with real world clinical applications for those of us on the front line dealing with patients, families, and insurance companies. Thank you.”
Robia Fields, MD, Leesburg, VA
“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
“After attending this course, I feel more confident in dealing with challenging patients. In addition, very useful, up-to-date information provided by experts in their field of practice. I look forward to attending future psychopharm courses. Thank you so much Jack!”
Virginia Corpuz, MD, El Dorado Hills, CA
“This was my first (MasterPsych) course but it will definitely be an annual occurrence for me. I expected 4 days of talks about medications, but it was much more beneficial than that. The speakers included renowned researchers and the topics covered were practical, clinical and substantiated by the latest literature. Everything was very organized and ran efficiently. Very satisfied each day!”
Kathy Scott Gurnell, MD, Houston, TX
“Super speakers, Best in field! Very A+ learning experience. I cannot find or think of any negatives. Special thanks for speakers’ optimism, personal treatment experiences, and responses to questions.”
Joseph Grosso, MD, Woodcliff, NJ
“Very good overview of broad scope of topics relevant to current psychopharmacology treatment. Excellent speakers and good networking opportunity. Very nice mix of learning and fun! Affordable registration rates. Snacks and mixer was a welcome bonus!”
Glenda Wrenn, MD, Atlanta, GA
“Good sense of humor which helps as break in long lectures to focus attention. Thorough copy of slides-very helpful to follow lectures and for later review with minimal need for notes to clarify small points/anecdotes. Well organized. Excellent breakfast and accommodations.”
Millicent Branch, MD, Franklin, TN
“Another great conference. Clear, straight-to-the-point presentations. Excellent speakers. Great atmosphere. I enjoy your courses, both web-based and live for the last five years. Strongly recommend to all psychiatric professionals without reservation.”
Tadeusz Rachwal, MD, New Britain, CT
“This is a great conference for both review and update. Dr. Jack’s encouragement to socialize is a very nice added touch that gives the overall experience good vibes! I highly recommend this and other courses from API.”
L.C. Vawter, MD, Worcester, MD
“I don’t like to miss this program-maybe “I am addicted to it”. Getting better every year.”
Dominic Gomes, MD, Westlake, OH
“Dr. Jack, I go to lots of meetings, and yours are among the most useful and enjoyable. I appreciate your obvious understanding of the balance between learning and absorbing so much information, and the need to pace that learning with meaningful opportunities for rest and relaxation between sessions. Thank you!”
Pam Forbes, MD, Roswell, GA
“This is my first MasterPsych conference and I am already looking forward to attending annually. The speakers, who are experts in their field, gave current information and new data on research, which are relevant to clinical practice. They provided practical approaches to difficult cases. I also appreciate the relaxing atmosphere of the hotel resort, which is also suitable for a family getaway.”
Rinah Gutierrez, MD, Kennewick, WA
“This course met, and in most cases, exceeded my expectations for such a course. The opportunity to “catch up” on the latest clinical information and research in both adult and child/adolescent psychiatry was incredible. I also greatly appreciate the opportunities to interact with so many psychiatrists in different types of practices.”
Robert Zeszotarski, MD, Santa Margarita, CA
“Great way to reconnect with faculty, colleagues and friends, and share/learn new knowledge and stay up to date. Fun way to earn needed CME.”
A. Temerova, Los Angeles, CA
“Jack, this was a SPECTACULAR course, practical and useful. One of the most powerful presentations was your presentation on suicide. I have recently supported the expansion of intensive outpatient services, and your concept and strategies to suicide treatment and assessment is what I will bring back to my team. I believe this additional education is the support needed to all case managers. Thank you!!”
Maria Villarosa, Riverside, CA
“I appreciated the lack of “Drug Rep” types of influences. Wonderful conference in a beautiful setting.”
Louis James Land, Colorado Springs, CO

Laila Contractor, Ladera Ranch, CA

Kim R. Guy, Los Angeles, CA
“Appreciate the separate adult and pediatric tracks. Topics were much more relevant to my clinical practice.”
Lucia Cheng, San Jose, CA
“Every year I love learning key interventions; tx plans, recommendations that I can apply on my practice. I appreciate taking time off to participate in a course that provides practical information. Never a waste of my educational time, that is so important to me. My time is valuable and you don’t let me down.”
Maria Villarosa, Riverside, CA
“Excellent Comprehensive review that exceeds just focusing in pharmacology. Good emphasis on benefits of CBT and medical legal risks.”
Audrey Hill, MD, Grand Blanc, MI
