Additional Opportunities for Fellows

Additional Opportunities to Explore as a Fellow

APA/APAF Fellows have unique opportunities outside of their fellowship program to get involved in the APA. Fellows can further their interests and experiences through governance, program and publishing opportunities.

Mentorship Program for APA/APAF Fellows

The Program pairs current Fellows with fellowship program alumni to provide guidance and counsel as Fellows transition to practice, navigate their careers and become leaders in psychiatry.

Learn more about the mentorship program and how to apply here.

Leadership, Equity and Diversity Institute

APA’s Division of Diversity and Health Equity (DDHE) has established the Leadership, Equity, and Diversity (LEAD) Institute to allow psychiatry trainees to refine their leadership skills and enhance their knowledge about diversity, equity and inclusion.

Learn more about the LEAD Institute and how to get involved here.

APA Councils

As part of the program responsibilities for each fellowship, fellows are assigned to serve on one of the APA's 13 Councils. APA Councils help to establish and implement various APA objectives.

Learn about the work and purpose of each council.

Leadership Positions for Residents

Several APA leadership positions and committees exist to specifically further the interests of APA Resident-Fellow members. These positions are open to any APA Resident-Fellow member interested in organizational psychiatry.
