Carlat Publishing strives to provide clinicians with practical, engaging, and unbiased psychiatric education. Our goal is to provide information that is actionable, so that clinicians can immediately apply what they learn to enhancing their day to day efforts to provide excellent patient care.
Medical Education Should be Accurate and Unbiased
We seek the most authoritative sources of information, including scientific journals, national experts, and highly experienced clinicians.
We scrutinize the source of data—if the source has a vested commercial interest, we spend extra effort evaluating the integrity of the data.
Medical Education Should be Fun
We cure clinical confusion with “a-ha!” moments that are fun and that people want to read.
We enhance the desire to learn by creating products that make clinicians feel smarter, more confident, and more capable.
We ensure that all of our products have the following qualities: refreshing, straightforward, compelling, relevant, useful
