Dr. Fava obtained his MD from the University of Padova School of Medicine where he completed residency training in endocrinology. He completed residency training in psychiatry at Mass General. He founded and was Director of the hospital’s Depression Clinical and Research Program (DCRP) from 1990 to 2014. In 2007, he founded and is now Executive Director of the Mass General Psychiatry Clinical Trials Network and Institute (CTNI), the first academic CRO specialized in planning and coordination of multi-center clinical trials in psychiatry.
Under Dr. Fava’s direction, the DCRP became one of the most highly regarded depression programs in the country, a model for academic programs that link, in a bi-directional fashion, clinical and research work. Dr. Fava has been successful in obtaining funding as principal or co-principal investigator from both the National Institutes of Health and other sources for a total of more than $95,000,000. His prominence in the field is reflected in his role as the co-principal investigator of STAR*D, the largest research study ever conducted in the area of depression, and of the RAPID Network, the NIMH-funded series of studies of novel, rapidly-acting antidepressant therapies.
Dr. Fava is a world leader in the field of depression. He has authored or co-authored more than 800 original articles published in medical journals with international circulation, edited eight books, and published more than 50 chapters and over 600 abstracts.
I have been coming to the Psychopharmacology conference every other year for the past 20 years or so and I have always found it extra-ordinarily helpful to my practice. The teaching is superb. The content is wonderfully clinically based and useful. I come away feeling confident that I am practicing within the standard of care and with evidence-based approaches.
I found this course extremely insightful and have already started implementing techniques with patients to help them challenge negative thoughts & beliefs. I have also used it to help my patients see alternative perspectives for negative thoughts or beliefs they hold. It has already helped some patients gain insight.
This was fantastic! I appreciated the superior quality and depth of the information you presented. I appreciated that it was presented by the experts in that field and without commercial bias. It was evidence based, well organized, and had immediate applicability in my practice.
I so look forward to this course each year! I always leave feeling well informed with renewed enthusiasm for how interesting this field is to work in!
