The Association for Academic Psychiatry (AAP) focuses on education in psychiatry at every level from the beginning of medical school through lifelong learning for psychiatrists and other physicians. It seeks to help psychiatrists who are interested in careers in academic psychiatry develop the skills and knowledge in teaching, research, and career development required to succeed. AAP provides members a forum to exchange ideas on teaching techniques, curriculum, and other issues and to work together to solve problems. AAP works with other professional organizations with mutual interests and objectives through committee liaison and collaborative programs.
