Boston University School of Medicine is delighted to present the Guerette Symposia, A Continuing Education Series for Mental Health Professionals. This program is a continuation of the popular series offered for many years by Dr. Rob Guerette.

These programs will provide psychologists, psychiatrists, psychiatric social workers, psychiatric nurses, and allied mental health professionals with outstanding opportunities to combine a stimulating symposium in relaxing and diverse locations. All programs are conducted by distinguished faculty who are leaders in their field.
