Course Overview

We are pleased to announce that the 34th Annual University of British Columbia Department of Psychiatry Research Day will be held on Thursday June 20th at the  Djavad Mowafaghian Centre for Brain Health DM-CBH Rudy North Theatre, UBC Campus.  This event’s main objectives will be to showcase research being conducted within the Department and to allow an opportunity for research networking and collaboration across sites, disciplines and experience levels. This will be accomplished via oral and poster presentations followed by a wine and cheese reception.   This year we will feature a new category of presentation: the Lightning talk that will be a 3-4 min oral presentation with 1 min for questions (no more than 3 ppt slides).

The UBC Department of Psychiatry Research Day will focus on providing updates on a diverse range of psychiatric topics of interest to clinicians and researchers alike. We have an exciting group of invited speakers on range of topics including: early intervention for psychosis (clinical Psychiatry), privacy of thought in the age of AI (Neuroethics), and the use of cannabis products in neurodegenerative disease (basic and clinical Neuroscience).









Registration will be closing 5:00pm Monday June 10th

All Department of Psychiatry faculty, residents, graduate and undergraduate students, fellows, staff and interns are invited to attend.
