Vision of the Oasis Psychiatry Conferences
The Plan: Oasis 5 Elements
- 1. Disorders & Their Treatments
- 2. Patient & Family
- 3. Heal Your Clinic
- 4. Your Career Action Plan
- 5. Clinician Well-Being
Disorders and Their TreatmentsAt Oasis, you learn to manage complex and treatment-resistant cases: you receive a real-world clinical focus, up-to-date data, and master-level psychopharmacology with detailed prescribing guidance.
Patient & FamilyTake a 360-degree view of patients and their unique resources and challenges. Address problems beyond the psychiatric disorder: treatment non-adherence, risk-taking behaviors, risk of suicide or violence, patient or family acting-out, and drug-seeking behaviors.
Heal Your ClinicEliminate recurring and foreseeable challenges presented by patients, families, and staff. Develop robust, easy-to-follow, and fair clinic procedures. Detailed strategies and sample scripts are provided. You won’t believe how much stress these approaches simply wipe away.
Your Career Action PlanGet to the heart of what drives you and develop a career plan that aligns with your deepest values and life goals. This year’s conference includes presentations on Setting Up a Telepsychiatry Practice and on Setting Up a Direct Pay Model Practice.
Clinician Well-BeingLearn techniques to increase your life satisfaction, improve your health, and decrease stress and burnout. Attend yoga sessions, guided imagery exercises, an ice-breaker reception, family-fun activities, and make (possibly life-long) friends.

The clinical material is comprehensive, relevant, and easily applicable to a busy outpatient clinic practice. The venue catered to families and individual attendees alike. Kudos to Dr. Krasuski’ s staff who kept everything running smoothly. Special shout out to Michael and Lynne for answering the little details that made a big difference. Eight of my friends and I have decided that the Oasis is our new CME home!!”

Lots of PEARLS and current evidence-based treatment information. The staff is courteous and wants to make sure the agenda has fun activities at the end. Good networking opportunities. In a field where burnout is common, Dr. Jack reminds us why we became Psychiatrists and how to ignite the fire to keep us going. Thanks.”

Dr. Gregory M. Keane, DO
“The Oasis 2019 Psychiatry Conference was outstanding. The guided meditations led by Dr. Jack were very calming and helped enhance the wonderful conference experience. This was a beautiful setting with outstanding meals and entertainment. Refreshing to have NO pharma involvement. Thanks!”
Jonathan Colen, DO, FAPA
“I have been coming to API board preparation classes and conferences for over nine years now. Each year is better than the last. The conference always has dynamic speakers who are at the forefront of what they do. I never feel they are pushing their own agenda or research. I feel I always learn practical information as to how to improve my practice and shift paradigms. I always leave feeling like my passion for psychiatry is re-ignited, and I am excited to see how the changes I will make will help my patients.”
“This is a wonderful conference! Great location. Relaxed atmosphere. Opportunity to watch sessions you aren’t able to attend live and still earn CME credits and gain valuable practical information.”
“Since my first attendance at a board review course [with API] 11 years ago, I have found the program VERY helpful in improving my practice. I like the smaller size of the conference and not being lost in the crowd. Presenters genuinely appeared interested in answering questions.”
“My colleague recommended this conference. I’m glad she did as it was wonderful! Useful, evidence-based talks. I will definitely attend this conference again in the future!”
Dr. Anduradha Thrupathy
“From start to finish, the vision of this conference is unique. Throughout the educational and other activities, there was a focus on well-being, self-care, healthy options, and interconnectedness. This was reflected in Dr. Jack’s guidance on greeting each other, making friends, and staying in touch after the conference, in the choices of food, and in the supplements: music during lunch, family-oriented events, and his own seminars on physician growth and well-being. The seminars’ educational value was also top-notch in both content and delivery. I will be back!”
“This is the second year in a row that I’ve attended this conference. The speakers are clearly experts in their field, and most are very dynamic and engaging. The most useful parts of this conference are the practical approach to the content. The pearls I take with me will undoubtedly improve my clinical practice. On a more personal basis, this conference has challenged me to consider what I really want in my professional life. I’ll be thinking about this carefully over the next few months and making changes to improve my satisfaction and happiness in what I do.”
“As with any of API’s conferences, the quality of the lectures is always excellent, and on top of that, having the ability to talk to other psychiatrists is an added bonus that you will not get at any APA conference. The material is always relevant.”
“I used Beat the Boards! throughout residency and attended last year’ s conference. I can honestly say that the content never disappoints. Dr. Jack and team continue to help me stretch my understanding of psychiatry.”
“Really appreciate the lack of bias/absence of pharm industry sponsorship. Topics & content were practical & inspiring. Would definitely return.”
“Very robust practical advice as advertised on the conference brochure. Very satisfied with the content of the topics. High-quality speakers with a wide range of topics. Great venue and great food. One happy customer, going back home to spread the message. It was worth coming so far.”
“The conference speakers were overall excellent. As compared to other conferences I’ve attended, the speakers were knowledgeable and obviously skilled at speaking/presenting. The range of content was comprehensive; the information was new in many instances. The meals, social events, and entertainment were tremendous – and exceeded the quality of any conference I’ve attended.”
“I try to attend this program every year. I find it an excellent opportunity to learn about the latest developments in the field of psychiatry. It’s a great opportunity to also connect and learn from other participants and do so in a relaxed and beautiful environment.”
Claus P. VonSchon
“Would highly recommend your conferences. I came last year and enjoyed it so much that I couldn’t wait to come again this year. The experience of hearing and talking with a variety of colleagues was the most helpful in addition to the unbiased, friendly, knowledgeable presenters made this an experience I’ve ever had at a conference. I also found the guided imagery sessions an added benefit.”
Mary Ann Mikus, DO
“It was a great opportunity to get away from a busy work schedule to obtain knowledge, meet and greet with fellow colleagues, enjoy food, impressive entertainment, scenic environment in a beautiful city in California. Thank you, Dr. Jack and team, 🙂 ”
“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 API 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.”

“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 Oasis 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.”

Lucia Cheng, San Jose, CA
“Every year I love learning key interventions, treatment plans, and recommendations that I can apply in my practice.

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
