Special Interest Groups
A Special Interest Group is the possibility for members who are especially interested in one or more particular aspects of consultation-liaison psychiatry and psychosomatic medicine, to gather in an informal group to discuss issues, cases, pharmaceuticals, and training.
If you are interested in participating in of the existing groups, simply contact the contact persons to find out even more! To form a new group, it needs at least two EAPM members and an informal letter to the EAPM Executive Council.
All Special Interest Groups are expected to present a short summary of their acticities before the annual EAPM conference. This report has to be sent to the EAPM Administrator in advance.
The Young Researchers Special Interest Group was founded at the 2017 EAPM conference in Barcelona.
