Call for Submissions
On behalf of the American Psychiatric Association and the American Association of Chairs of Departments of Psychiatry, we are inviting submissions for the 2012 APA-AACDP Research Mentorship Award.
This award honors an academic psychiatrist who has, in a significant traditional or innovative manner, fostered the pursuit of student research within his/her university department. The nominee’s contribution may be through direct mentorship of individual students or by the promotion of novel research-oriented training activities within a department or residency program. The award consists of an inscribed plaque and a $1,500 honorarium to be presented at the APA Annual Meeting.
Only one nomination from any department will be considered. Candidates for the award need not be limited to senior, well-established candidates; innovativeness and dedication will be honored at any academic level. Nominees must be members of APA.
The award recipient will be selected by the APA Committee on Research Awards, Stuart C. Yudofsky, M.D., Chair.
The nomination package, which should be submitted electronically, should include:
- A nomination letter describing the contribution(s) of the nominee to the department/residency program and/or to the people mentored
- A representative list of mentees or other beneficiaries of a specific research training program fostered by the nominee
- The nominee’s curriculum vitae
The nomination package should be submitted to Harold Goldstein, Ph.D., APA Division of Research
Please note the Submission Deadline of Friday, August 31, 2012.
