Queens County DB Boasts 100% Trainee Membership

Volume 45 Number 20 page 29-29

All of the psychiatry residency programs in the area covered by the Queens County Psychiatric Society have become members of APA's 100% Club. That means that all of the psychiatry residents in these programs are members of APA.

Each program in the 100% Club receives a framed group picture of its residents and faculty and a major psychiatry textbook, and each resident receives an online subscription to APA's Focus: The Journal of Lifelong Learning. Both the textbook and journal are published by American Psychiatric Publishing Inc.

"Residents from Jamaica Hospital Medical Center, Long Island Jewish Medical Center, Mount Sinai Services-Elmhurst Hospital Center, and Creedmoor Psychiatric Center are essential members of our organization," said Adam Chester, D.O., president of the Queens County Psychiatric Society. "We have successfully recruited all our residents into APA by emphasizing the importance of membership and by following through with local programs of interest to members at all levels of their careers. Our activities are designed to promote learning, provide networking opportunities, and foster good psychiatric practices."

Among those activities is a "Meet and Greet" each fall, at which trainees get to know each other and the society's leadership. The educational component of this event is designed specifically for trainees, based on topics of their choosing. There is also an annual "Best Paper" contest, held each spring, which showcases the cutting-edge research conducted by the society's resident members.

"Our residents actively participate in all our educational activities," Chester continued. "We offer programs from therapy and pharmacology to technology, ethics, and other aspects of a modern psychiatric practice. By providing a wide range of programs, our trainees see the benefits of membership from the start of their careers, and retention of members remains high. We are proud of our members in training and strive to provide them with a positive and meaningful educational experience."
