The BAP developed the 'Masterclasses in Clinical Psychopharmacology' in response to feedback from previous events. The three stand-alone, one-day events run consecutively twice a year and were first held in 2007. Delegates can register for just a single day, or two or three, depending on their needs and interests. The full three day package is intended to provide a state-of-the-art update in psychopharmacology for clinicians particularly, though not exclusively, those working with adults. Days are broken down into sections focused around disease areas. These generally begin with a review of the basic pharmacology of the relevant drugs before dealing in detail with their clinical use. This includes discussions around relevant BAP and NICE guidelines. Significant amounts of time in the programme are set aside to provide delegates with an opportunity for questions and discussion with the speakers. The BAP Masterclasses in Psychopharmacology are particularly relevant for any consultant or staff grade psychiatrist wishing to undertake CPD in psychopharmacology. However they are also appropriate for other non-consultant grade psychiatrist and trainees, both prior to and post Membership exams. Pharmacists, GPs with a special interest in psychiatry and other non-medical prescribers may also find the meetings of great value, if they have a good basic understanding of the use of psychotropic medication (if in doubt seek advice). Attendance is limited to 70 to maximise interaction between attendees and presenters, and meetings are usually over-subscribed.

Each day is accredited with 5 CPD hours which are subject to peer group review.


The Masterclasses are entirely independent of pharmaceutical industry involvement.
