Are you a psychiatry resident who has research, ideas, or scholarly
activities that you would like to share in a national forum? If so, then APA's
2005 Institute on Psychiatric Services, which is being held in San Diego from
October 5 to 9, can provide an opportunity for you.
This year's institute will feature five poster sessions that will make it
easy for residents who are working on research projects to present their
findings to a national audience. In the past, roughly 90 percent of all poster
submissions were accepted for presentation.
In addition to the poster sessions, the institute offers many other
experiences designed for residents, including a residents-only welcoming
session, leadership and career development seminars, a "Meet the
Experts" luncheon with leaders in psychiatric subspecialties, a full-day
session on working with homeless mentally ill individuals, and mentoring
The poster-submission deadline is June 6. Submission forms can be
downloaded from APA's Web site at<www.psych.org/edu/ann_mtgs/ips/05/index.cfm>.
