Updated "A Roadmap to Psychiatric Residency"

Greetings Epic Educators!

An updated version of "A Roadmap to Psychiatric Residency" is now live on the APA website.

This document - created with educators from ADMSEP, AADPRT, AAP and involvement of PsychSign - first arrived in 2019. It was updated this year to reflect changes in Psychiatry Match and in it you will find practical guidance on personal statements, how to think about applying, personal statements and questions for the interview day. There is also specialty advice for military match, couples match, osteopathic students and internal students.

Many members of ADMSEP contributed to this document, for which I am eternally grateful.

Applying for Psychiatric Residency
Guide to Applying for Psychiatric Residency. Congratulations on choosing one of the most exciting fields in medicine. Not only are psychiatrists uniquely trained to consider the patient from a "whole person" perspective, but the field also includes a wide range of practice settings and diverse opportunities for subspecialization. www.psychiatry.org

I encourage you to share this widely with students planning on applying to our field, with faculty advisors and even with your student affairs deans.

Best,
Lia A. Thomas, MD

2021 ADMSEP Annual Meeting announcement

ADMSEP's leadership has come to the tough decision to cancel the in-person meeting that was scheduled in Pittsburgh, PA, this year in favor of a virtual meeting. So this year's ADMSEP Annual Meeting will be held virtually (via Zoom) on June 16-18, 2021.

In recognition of both the format change and the need to cover the organization's annual operating expenses, the ADMSEP Council has adjusted the meeting registration fee for the three-day virtual meeting. The registration cost will cover all expenses for the meeting, including your CME credits.

Here’s the cost breakdown:

  • ADMSEP Member: $375 on or before May 15. $400 after May 15.
  • Clerkship Coordinator/Administrator: $40.00
  • Medical Student/Resident: $95.00
  • Non-ADMSEP member: $400 until May 15. $450 after May 15.

The registration process will be held via our Cvent portal, and it is scheduled to open on April 12!

Thank you for your support and understanding. The program committee has worked diligently to develop an informative, engaging program for you. The meeting will provide an opportunity to learn, teach and connect with fellow psychiatric educators. We look forward to getting together to share scholarship, fellowship and friendship.

We are also looking forward to our 2022 annual meeting next year in Austin, Texas, when we can reconnect in person.

In between now and June, we will plan to see you on Zoom on April 27 for our Spring Quarterly Meeting — 4:00 p.m. EDT.
