Over the last year, Dr. Ash Bhatt has directed nationwide clinical activities in his role as chief medical officer at Sovereign Health Group. The former director of acute child and adolescent psychiatric inpatient unit and emergency crisis services at University of Miami Jackson Memorial Hospital, Dr. Ash Bhatt, MD, holds a membership with the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (AACAP).
Throughout the year, AACAP helps its members remain abreast of emerging topics in the field of youth psychiatry by hosting a number of industry meetings and educational seminars. Perhaps the academy’s most important event is its Annual Meeting, which will celebrate its 63rd year in October 2016.
Held at both the Sheraton New York Times Square and New York Hilton Midtown, AACAP’s Annual Meeting will feature diverse programming that caters to the needs of each guest. Over the course of six days, attendees will thus have the opportunity to engage in poster meetings, instructional workshops, and treatment symposia. The Annual Meeting will also feature a number of unique sessions for specific groups such as medical students and those in the early years of their careers. These sessions will not only enable budding psychiatrists to network, but they will also provide useful information on building private practices and publishing medical writings in journals.
