Opportunities to Connect with Maryland Psychiatrists

Maryland Psychiatric Society, the state medical specialty organization representing more than 700 psychiatrists, offers a variety of ways to communicate directly with its members.  Whether it be news about job openings, insurance offerings, behavioral health services, medications, continuing medical education programs or other information of interest to psychiatrists, we are happy to assist in getting the word out.  Following are our standard options, but we are open to new ideas or suggestions.  Contact Meagan Floyd at mfloyd@mdpsych.org or 410-625-0232.
