We are happy to announce that the EFPT Forum 2023 will take place in Switzerland!

Join us when in 2023 young psychiatrists from all over Europe and beyond are going to meet from 4th until 8th July for the 31st Forum of the European Federation of Psychiatric Trainees in Zurich, Switzerland.

Here some basic information about the Forum

What is the EFPT Forum?

EFPT stands for European Federation of Psychiatric Trainees. It is a similar organization to the Swiss Association of Psychiatric Trainees (SAPT or also called SVPA-ASMAP-ASAP) but for Europe. Every year there is a Forum for psychiatric trainees (adult and CAP). National training associations who are members of the EFPT like the SAPT can send participants to the Forum. Around 200 motivated psychiatric trainees from all over Europe and a few selected international guests from further away will take part in 2023. They are all training to become specialists in psychiatry (adult or CAP), just like us.





Tuesday 4th to Saturday 8th July 2023
