In the heart of science and patient care

The DGPPN Congress 2023 will take place from 29.11. to 02.12.2023 in the CityCube Berlin. A digital programme will be offered for all those who are not able to participate on site. Thus, there will be two ways to participate. 

Thanks to its broad range of topics, renowned experts and excellent continuing education opportunities, the DGPPN Congress has established itself as a central forum for the field of psychiatry and psychotherapy. In just four days participants can obtain a comprehensive overview of current developments in psychiatry, psychotherapy and psychosomatics. The congress programme will cover all relevant mental illnesses and will put a lot of emphasis on biological and psychotherapeutic topics and topics of social psychiatry.
