Another Residency Program Joins APA's 100% Club
Psychiatric News
Volume 40 Number 23 page 17-17

The psychiatry residency training program at Indiana University School of Medicine in Indianapolis is the latest residency program to have all of its psychiatry residents become members of APA.

It joins the ranks of an exclusive organization within APA: the 100% Club. This club was established to encourage residents in the United States and Canada to join APA and to do so with other trainees in their programs, according to Deborah Hales, M.D., director of APA's Division of Education and Career Development.

A photo of each program that joins the 100% Club will be turned into a poster and mailed to every medical school in the United States and Canada to encourage medical students to join APA. In addition, programs in the 100% Club receive a major textbook from American Psychiatric Publishing Inc. for each year that all of their residents are APA members and a free online subscription to Focus: The Journal of Lifelong Learning.

Indiana's director of residency training is Alan Schmetzer, M.D.

"The psychiatry residency program at Indiana is not overly large," he commented, "but it is very diverse, with general psychiatry residents, combined programs with pediatrics and neurology, and four fellowship programs, all scattered over six close-by, but separate, hospitals. Given that, I think Patricia Sharpley, who prior to her untimely death was on our faculty for many years and chaired the APA Membership Committee, must be smiling down on us to see that we got everyone in training here to either initiate or renew their APA memberships! It's a great group of residents, and we try to get them as involved as we can in both the Indiana Psychiatric Society and APA. The future of psychiatry depends on just such people"FIG1
