Psychiatry residency training directors are invited to nominate residents
for the APA/Bristol-Myers Squibb Fellowship in Public Psychiatry. The goals of
the APA/BMS Fellowship Program are to provide experiences that will contribute
to the professional development of residents who may be leaders in the public
sector in the future and heighten the awareness of psychiatry residents of the
many activities and career opportunities in the public sector.
Based on their interests, fellows are assigned to an APA component and take
part in all deliberations, projects, and initiatives. They attend APA's fall
component meetings in September in Washington, D.C., and other meetings as
appropriate at the fellowship's expense. Fellows also participate in APA's
Institute on Psychiatric Services.
Psychiatry residents entering PGY-3 during the fellowship term are eligible
to participate in the program. Residents who will be in PGY-4 will be
considered if they are in a five-year training program. The deadline for
applications is April 1; selection notifications will be made in May.
Additional information and an application is available by visiting<www.psych.org/edu/med_students/bmsfellow/index.cfm>
