The transition from residency to early-career psychiatry is a complicated yet exciting time. As an organization, APA offers valuable support to its young members by continuing to help them through this process. Mentors can also be a great source of support and guidance through the process. APA’s local district branches and state associations can be a great place to find such mentors, and APA’s annual meeting next month in Philadelphia is another. With careful preparation, self-presentation, and a little bit of luck, it is possible to land your dream job directly out of residency.
