The Ohio Psychiatric Physicians Association (OPPA) was founded in 1950 as the third district branch of the American Psychiatric Association (APA), whose more than 1,000 physician members specialize in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mental illnesses, including substance use disorders.
The Ohio Psychiatric Physicians Association is the professional association in the state of Ohio that focuses exclusively on the needs of physicians who specialize in psychiatry.
A major strategic goal of the Ohio Psychiatric Physicians Association is to advocate on behalf of our patients and our profession.
The OPPA offers educational opportunities specifically designed to meet the needs of Ohio's psychiatrists. We also welcome the opportunity to collaborate with others - more information can be found in our Co-Marketed/Joint-Sponsored Educational Events policy.
