Volume 43 Number 10 page 13-13

The psychiatry residency training program at the Pennsylvania State College of Medicine Milton S. Hershey Medical Center 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 throughout 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 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 residency training director Errol Aksu, M.D., "Eager to expand my knowledge base and develop my professional identity, I became a member of APA when I was a third-year medical student. Now as a training director, I am very pleased and proud that all Penn State psychiatry residents are doing the same by having joined APA. Membership will enhance their career development by providing opportunities for continuing education, professional networking, and patient advocacy. I am confident that by experiencing the many benefits of belonging to APA, our residents will continue to be productive members of the psychiatric community throughout their careers."

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