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 2012 annual meeting in Philadelphia in May (1 ). 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:
