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 high-quality services to minorities and the underserved. It is also designed to involve the fellows in psychiatry in APA's work and to give APA the perspective of young psychiatrists.

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

The SAMHSA and Substance Abuse Fellows receive a government stipend for 12 months (based on their PGY level). AstraZeneca fellows do not receive stipends and serve for two years. Residents must be APA members, U.S. citizens, and in at least PGY-2 by July 2005 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, 2005. For more information contact Marilyn King by phone at (703) 907-8653 or by e-mail at mking@psych.org. Information is also posted online on the fellowship homepage at<www.psych.org/med_ed/cmhs_index.cfm>.
