From young professionals for young professionals

Several workshops, symposia, meet-the-expert sessions, lectures and discussion forums have been specially tailored for young professionals.

The WPA XVII WORLD CONGRESS OF PSYCHIATRY is not only aimed at seasoned scientists and experts but has set itself the goal to connect the generations with each other both within the professional field and across all national boundaries. Young psychiatrists and those who want to become psychiatrists will have the opportunity to interact directly with leading figures in the field and make valuable contacts. You can find an overview of the formats from and for young professionals in the congress programme, which will be published in Summer 2017.

Generation PSY – The voice of young professionals in Germany
Generation PSY is the DGPPN initiative for young professionals that aims to stimulate their interest in the field of psychiatry and psychotherapy. It shows that psychiatry is one of the most fascinating disciplines in medicine. The field is in desperate need of young talent in order to avoid serious gaps in care in the future. Generation PSY offers a special package of services that is aligned with the various stages of specialist training in psychiatry and psychotherapy. It includes, for example, summer schools, a mentoring programme and intensive courses for the specialist examination and, last but not least, a programme at the annual DGPPN Congress specially designed for young professionals.
