Psychiatry residents are invited to apply for APA’s Minority Fellowships Program. The program provides educational enrichment to psychiatry trainees and stimulates their interest in providing quality and effective services to minorities and the underserved.

There are three groups of fellows in the Minority Fellowships Program: APA/CMHS Fellows (funded by SAMHSA’s Center for Mental Health Services), APA/CMHS Substance Abuse fellows (funded by Centers for Substance Abuse Treatment and Substance Abuse Prevention), and APA/AstraZeneca Fellows (funded by AstraZeneca).

The CMHS and substance abuse fellows receive a government stipend for 12 months, based on PGY level. AstraZeneca fellows do not receive stipends and serve for two years.

Residents must be APA members and U.S. citizens; they must also be in at least PGY-2 to apply or PGY-5 for the substance abuse segment. Residents interested in the substance abuse segment must be in a substance abuse training program approved by the affiliated medical school or agency where a significant number of substance abuse patients are from minority and underserved groups.

The deadline for applications is January 31, 2004. Applications and more information are available by contacting Marilyn King by phone at (703) 907-8653 or e-mail at mking@psych.org. Applications can also be accessed on APA’s Web site at www.psych.org/edu/other_res/apa_fellowship/cmhs_index.cfm.
