A Clinical Consultation Breakfast is a forum for an expert or experts to share clinical wisdom and discuss difficult cases which attendees are encouraged to bring. The emphasis should be on case and clinical consultation directed at material offered by participants. Discussions often include clinical pearls and take-home points from the discussant regarding diagnosis, treatment, or other relevant clinical issues.


A Clinical Consultation Breakfast should follow these guidelines in order to be considered by the Program Committee for the 2024 Annual Meeting program:

  • Include 1-2 expert clinicians to present a few cases and provide in depth feedback on how each case was managed.
  • Should be facilitated conversations with a small group of ticketed attendees.
  • Should NOT be a presentation without audience interaction.
  • The Review Abstract should describe ample opportunities for audience questions, comments, and discussion.


A Clinical Consultation Breakfast will be in a room with seating in a u-shape or hollow square. No AV equipment will be provided.


Each submission for a Clinical Consultation Breakfast should include the following items:

  • Submission title
  • Chair(s) affiliation and email address(es)
  • At least two (2) educational learning objectives
  • Review Abstract (see details below)*
  • Names, organizations, contact information, email addresses, and disclosures for all co-presenters

* Submitters should organize the Review Abstract for the entire Clinical Consultation Breakfast presentation under the following headings:

  • Objective (what is the clinical syndrome, condition or context being discussed OR what is the specific therapeutic technique that is illustrated)
  • Background (some information about the topic presented in the Objective)
  • Methods (give at least a one paragraph description of what will be presented)
  • Conclusions (what aspect will each of the presenters or discussants address)
  • Bibliography (provide at least 1 and no more than 5 references supporting this work)

NOTE: Clinical Consultation Breakfasts do not require a Proceedings Abstract.


AACAP has a strong commitment to promoting mental health equity and combating health disparities. We support cultural competency efforts that enable practitioners to care effectively for patients from diverse cultures, groups, and communities. Each presentation MUST include relevant information on differences in prevalence, diagnosis, and treatment pertaining to diverse racial and ethnic populations and/or consider other ways of infusing diversity, equity and inclusion principles into the proposal in other ways. This may include selecting diverse presenters, including participants with lived experience, using the backdrop of Seattle to the benefit of the program, or many other ways that reflect AACAP’s values. If information is not available or if the presenters’ research does not include this information, speakers should address limitations of current research data in addressing needs of minoritized groups.


Clinical Consultation Breakfasts are ticketed events. Attendance is limited to 15-20 participants in addition to the presenter(s).

These sessions should facilitate conversation in the small group. As such, slides should not be used, and audiovisual equipment will not be available at the meeting.


AACAP will accept approximately twelve (12) Clinical Consultation Breakfasts this year. All Clinical Consultation Breakfasts must submit a complete proposal each year to be considered for the scientific program at the Annual Meeting. To submit a Clinical Consultation Breakfast session for consideration, select “Begin a Submission” at the top or bottom right-hand side of this page.
