Events & Registration


Spring Conference

The Spring Conference is held in correlation with an HBCU, an academic institution, or a location with a large African descent population within the continental U.S. and features broad programming that addresses the needs of psychiatric professionals across the career span.

Fall Conference

The Fall Conference, known as the Transcultural Conference, is held away from the continental U.S. in a territory or country that has a large population of the African Diaspora or relevant to the interests of Black Psychiatrists. We hold our annual meeting at this event and offer off-site excursions for the purposes of education, networking, and fellowship.
