CDLP Committee

The Alies Muskin Career Development Leadership Award Program (CDLP) is an intensive mentoring and professional development opportunity for early career clinicians and researchers that is offered at ADAA's Annual Conference.

This interactive learning experience challenges thinking and encourages creative discourse about anxiety, depression, and co-occurring disorders in a diverse, multidisciplinary community of professionals involved in practice and research.

This program is a wonderful opportunity to benefit from episodic mentoring and to develop skills to become more professionally competitive. The CDLP's focus is to offer an environment where ADAA's next generation of leaders can flourish.

CDLP awardees are grouped among two tracks: 

  • Clinical
