Minority, Underrepresented Groups Share Concerns Through Caucuses
Psychiatric News
Volume 49 Number 4 page 1

Psychiatrists who identify with any of APA’s recognized minority and underrepresented (M/UR) groups are urged to join that group’s caucus and attend its meeting at APA’s 2014 annual meeting in New York in May. The minority and underrepresented group caucuses were established to provide a networking opportunity and foster communication among members who share a special interest.

There are caucuses for the following groups: American Indian/Alaska Native/Native Hawaiians; Asian Americans; blacks; Hispanics; lesbians, gays, and bisexuals; international medical graduates; and women.

Participation in a caucus is a pathway to the following:

  • Exploring concerns about professional growth and advancement.

  • Identifying, supporting, and electing top-notch M/URs for leadership posts.

  • Networking with members with shared backgrounds.

  • Advocating for minority patient populations.

  • Talking about key issues facing APA.

  • Initiating mentoring relationships.

  • Bringing concerns to APA leadership.

  • Assuming leadership roles in APA.
