Here's what you need to do following big conferences like the 2024 APA Annual Meeting.


Psychiatric Times sat down with Mena Mirhom, MD, FAPA; Sasidhar Gunturu, MD; and Suhakar Shenoy, MD, to discuss their thoughts on networking and follow-up after a big conference like the 2024 American Psychiatric Association (APA) Annual Meeting.

Some of their top recommendations include:

  • Funnel and focus: Network strategically and reach out to individuals you met after the conference, reminding them of a conversation you had with them.
  • Use the APA app: The app has a lot of features to help you continue networking even post meeting.
  • Utilize resources like Psychiatric Times: Stay in touch with your vast network and continue learning through publications.
  • Come to the next APA Annual Meeting in Los Angeles!
