Psychiatric News
Volume 41 Number 23 page 54-54

Psychiatry residents are invited to apply for APA's Minority Fellowships Program (MFP). The MFP provides educational opportunities not only to minority residents, but to all residents interested in providing quality and effective service to minorities and the underserved. The fellowships provide the funds for psychiatry residents to experience a specialized educational program geared toward building leaders in psychiatry. They are also designed to involve fellows in APA's work and give APA the perspective of young psychiatrists.

The MFP fellows are classified into three groups: 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 deadline for applications is January 31, 2007. All applicants must be in their PGY-2 by July 2007 or PGY-5 for the substance abuse segment and must be APA members. SAMHSA applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents at the time of application.
