A Toolkit for Potential Applicants
APA/APAF Fellowships provide psychiatry residents the experiential learning, training and professional development they need to be leaders in the field of psychiatry.
The fellowship programs offer opportunites to work with Congress on health policy, conduct research of your design, expand access to care to minority and underserved populations, focus on child psychiatry or substance abuse, and much more.
In addition, APA Fellows get exclusive opportunities to be a part of APA leadership councils and network with APA members from around the country.
The APA and APAF award up to 77 fellowships each year across eight different fellowship programs. Areas of focus include policy, research, substance abuse, child psychiatry and more.
Each fellowship has unique application requirements, program responsibilities and eligibility requirements – all detailed on each fellowship's page.
