Psychiatric Fellowships and Awards Worth Considering

Psychiatric Fellowships and Awards Worth Considering

Are you interested in finding available fellowships and awards for yourself or a colleague?  We are pleased to share the following information regarding three organizations that are offering awards and fellowships.

Association of Women Psychiatrists (AWP) Fellowship and Award

The Association for Women Psychiatrists offers the AWP Fellowship. As stated on its website, “the Fellowship is offered each year to two outstanding women psychiatry residents who have demonstrated leadership and a contribution to women’s health. It is designed in keeping with AWP goals of developing leadership in women psychiatrists as well as contributing to the overall mission of improving the personal and professional future roles of women. Two candidates are selected based on a demonstrated leadership potential, interest in and commitment to women’s health and academic excellence and community mental health service.”

The association also offers the Leah J. Dickstein, M.D. Medical Student Award. According to AWP, this award “was established in 1992 to recognize a female medical student who best exemplifies the spirit of creativity, energy, and leadership that Dr. Dickstein herself epitomizes and seeks to foster in others.”

Recommendations Sought for 2019 Senior Psychiatrists' Berson Award

Senior Psychiatrists, Inc. are seeking recommendations for the Berson Award. As the organization noted in its member email, “the award is given annually to a Senior Psychiatrists member who has contributed significantly to psychiatry. The Award was made possible by a generous grant in 1993 by Harold Berson, M.D. and consists of an honorarium of $1,000 and an inscribed plaque. It is presented each year at the Senior Psychiatrists' Annual Meeting s held in conjunction with the APA's Annual Meeting.

The Senior Psychiatrists' Award Committee is soliciting suggestions from the Senior Psychiatrists' membership at large for names of deserving candidates who should be considered for the Award. The definition of "significant" contribution(s) to psychiatry is a broad one, which may consist of scientific or service contributions to the profession, the APA or the Senior Psychiatrists organization. The candidate must be an APA Fellow or Life Fellow. Suggestions must also be accompanied by reasons supporting the recommendation. Recent awardees have included Stephen Scheiber, Sheila Hafter Gray, Jack McIntyre, Joseph English, Roger Peele, Jack Bonner, Paul Wick, Dilip Jeste, Nada Stotland, Steven Sharfstein, and Herb Pardes.

Please send nominations to Pat Troy, Executive Director, Senior Psychiatrists, at or mail to Senior Psychiatrists, 550M Ritchie Highway, #271, Severna Park, MD 21146.”

American Society for Adolescent Psychiatry Best Resident Poster Session Award and Best Resident Paper on Adolescent Psychiatry

American Society for Adolescent Psychiatry’s (ASAP) Annual Meeting will be held on Friday, May 17, 2019 in San Francisco, CA at the Intercontinental Hotel. During the meeting, a poster session will take place along with a reception to honor the winners of the poster session and paper contest. Additional information about each award, just as the ASAP website states:

Poster:  A resident poster session can be presented by a resident who is the primary author, adult or child/adolescent psychiatry resident at an accredited institution, and an ASAP member. Any resident submitting a poster will receive complimentary registration to the Annual Meeting.  ASAP judges will review all poster sessions to select the recipient of the ASAP Best Resident Poster Session Award.  The winner will receive $500 to offset the costs involved in attending the meeting, will be announced at the end of the May 17 meeting, and receive complimentary admission to the evening reception.  Attendees are encouraged to visit the poster session to view the research being presented.

The award includes $1,000 to offset the costs involved in travel to the meeting and for lodging while there, and the opportunity to be recognized at ASAP’s annual reception. The winning paper will be considered for publication in Adolescent Psychiatry, the official publication of the ASAP.  Please click here to submit a paper.
