Psychiatry Resident Scholarship Opportunity

The Academy of Organizational and Occupational Psychiatry (AOOP) was founded in 1990 to provide a forum for an exchange of ideas between psychiatry and the world of work.  AOOP’s annual meeting is an opportunity to enhance the knowledge and skills of its members through various training opportunities and professional networking; to liaison with other professional groups concerned with workplace health and mental health; and to encourage and support the practice of organizational and occupational psychiatry.  The AOOP Psychiatry Resident Scholarship was created to afford psychiatry residents the opportunity to attend the annual meeting while recognizing their educational station might ordinarily prevent them from attending.

Interested psychiatry residents should submit a curriculum vitae along with a 1-2 page double-spaced essay about either 1) a pertinent topic in organizational or occupational psychiatry; or 2) details of interest in organizational or occupational psychiatry.  These essays are read by the President of AOOP and the AOOP Board, who then award two scholarships yearly for tuition for the meeting based upon merit of items submitted.

The C.V. and essay should be sent to Dr. Greg Couser at .  Any questions can be directed to Dr. Couser.
