The American Academy of Psychiatry and the Law is pleased to announce the 36th Annual Rappeport Fellowship competition. Named in honor of AAPL’s founding president, Jonas R. Rappeport, MD, the fellowships offer an opportunity for outstanding residents with interests in psychiatry and the law to develop their knowledge and skills.
Winners must attend the Annual Meeting and Forensic Psychiatry Review Course, in order to win the award, short of extenuating circumstances of which AAPL is notified in advance.
The AAPL meeting will be held at the Chicago Marriott Downtown from October 19-22, 2023. Immediately prior to the Annual Meeting, from October 16-18, Fellows will also attend AAPL's Forensic Psychiatry Review Course, an intensive, comprehensive overview of psychiatry and law.
At the Annual Meeting, Fellows are encouraged to attend the many excellent educational sessions, and to meet with AAPL preceptors, who can assist them in exploring interests in psychiatry and the law.
Travel, lodging, and educational expenses are included in the fellowship award, and a per diem will be paid to cover meals and other expenses. In addition, Fellows receive subscriptions to AAPL's major publications, the Newsletter and the Journal of the American Academy of Psychiatry and the Law.
Residents who are currently PGY-3 in a general program, or PGY-4 in a child or geriatric subspecialty training program and who will begin their final year of training in July 2022, are eligible. Canadian PGY-4 general psychiatry residents and Canadian PGY-5 child residents are eligible. We will accept two nominations from each residency program. Please see enclosed for procedures for nominations. Of particular note, applications must be emailed to the AAPL Executive Office (email@example.com) no later than April 1, 2023.
