VI Annual Meeting on Therapeutics in Psychiatry

Auditorium of the School of Medicine, Barcelona

Universitat de Barcelona


The main aim of this international meeting is to enable participants to exchange views and bring themselves up to date on different aspects of differential diagnosis and the treatment of serious mental illnesses.

For this reason, the information provided will be of a practical nature, in an effort to balance what is to be found in the literature and the personal experience of both speakers and attendees. To this end, speakers have been carefully chosen for their extensive practical experience together with an established teaching background.

We hope you will find the programme interesting and that it will live up to your expectations.
