Welcome to the Medical Psychiatry Alliance (MPA) 2019 Annual Conference. Each year the MPA Conference attracts a range of healthcare professionals, trainees, patients and family members who are dedicated to transforming the lives of patients living with both mental and physical health issues. The MPA was designed to create new models of care and to train current and future healthcare providers to better support patients and families with co-occurring mental and physical health conditions. Attendees to this year’s conference will learn about capacity building efforts in new models of care, education programs from undergraduate to practice and will have opportunities to explore how MPA clinical and education programs can be scaled to their local setting. Our conference program includes several leading researchers, educators, clinicians, learners and service users, in addition to many networking opportunities. We look forward to seeing you in Toronto this year!
