The American Psychiatric Association (APA) is committed to fostering diversity in the psychiatric workforce, and is working to engage people from different cultures, backgrounds and perspectives as future leaders in psychiatry.The APA's Future Leaders in Psychiatry Program (FLIPP) is designed to champion diversity, build an inclusive psychiatric workforce and prepare future leaders to successfully enter the field of psychiatry.
In FLIPP, undergraduate students will be exposed to the field of psychiatry and receive mentorship from some of the world’s leading psychiatrists. Participants will also receive learning and development opportunities, resources to help navigate the medical school preparation process, and financial support for travel to APA conferences.
APA encourages interested students to apply, particularly individuals from groups that have been shown by the National Science Foundation to be underrepresented in health-related sciences on a national basis2 including Blacks or African Americans, Hispanics or Latinos, American Indians or Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, and other Pacific Islanders.
