Course Details

Registration Deadline: July 18, 2022

The course will present a primer on the diagnosis and management of depression for the general psychiatrist, primary care physician, or nurse practitioner. The course is designed in a scalable model. This means that each lecture builds upon the previous one, paralleling the thought process that psychiatrists follow when facing a patient with increasingly resistant depression. Participants may follow the course as far as they wish, based on how much they are interested in doing in their practices. Participants will get a complete, self-contained lesson in each lecture, permitting them to either view the entire course (in any order desired) or select which module(s) they wish to view. The lectures will include at least one case presentation, played by two of the DCRP faculty where one will play the doctor and the other will play the patient.

The course includes an array of resources, videos and other materials to enhance the learning experience. All content and assignments can be completed at any time. Weekly call-in times allow faculty to hear and respond to questions directly, and an interactive discussion board lets participants post questions and interact with peers from across the United States and around the world. Plus, the course is accessible via desktop, laptop, smartphone or tablet.

Course materials are available beginning on July 18, 2022 and all online course work must be completed by August 8, 2022.
