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.

A photo of the residents in each program that joins the 100% Club is 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. and a free online subscription to Focus: The Journal of Lifelong Learning for each year that all of their residents are APA members.

Said program director T.O. Dickey, M.D., "We are very pleased and proud to have our program achieve 100 percent membership by our residents. Membership in APA has so many benefits, including helping trainees achieve excellence in the ACGME core competency areas of professionalism, patient care, medical knowledge, and practice-based learning."

More information about the 100% Club is available from Nancy Delanoche of APA's Division of Education at (703) 907-8635. Programs that are interested in signing up all their residents should also contact Delanoche.
