Mulligan selected for American Psychiatric Leadership Fellowship Program

Second-year psychiatry resident Tua-Elisabeth Mulligan, MD, has been chosen to participate in the American Psychiatric Association (APA) American Psychiatric Leadership (APL) Fellowship Program, the oldest fellowship program offered by the APA. The two-year fellowship will give Mulligan the opportunity to network with residents from around the country and serve alongside psychiatrists who are considered leaders in their area of expertise, as well as the chance to serve in the APA governance structure on a council and receive supplemental training on topics such as leadership development, mentorship, media interaction and advocacy. As part of her fellowship, she will also attend APA September Components meetings this fall and next year, the 169th APA Annual Meeting in Atlanta, and the 170th APA Annual Meeting in San Diego.

Since 1968, the APL Fellowship has provided a unique opportunity for residents to engage, interact and participate at a national level and further develop their professional networks and psychiatric experience. It has contributed to introducing residents to organized psychiatry and launching the careers of many leaders in the field of psychiatry.
