Public Speaking

Several of our physicians are trained promotional speakers for a variety of pharmaceutical companies. These doctors have been chosen because of their experience and expertise in their field and because of the respect amongst their peers. We believe this offers us the opportunity to meet with and discuss the current issues in our field with the primary thought leaders and researchers of psychiatry. Additionally it allows us to interact on a local, regional and national level with our psychiatric peers.
