Longtime WPA (Wisconsin Psychiatric Association) leader Dr. Clarence Chou was recently selected by the APA Assembly Committee of Resident-Fellow Member Representatives to receive the 2017 Assembly Resident-Fellow Member (RFM) Mentor Award. This honor showcases Dr. Chou's outstanding work as a mentor and advocate for RFMs.

The award will be presented on Saturday, May 20th, during the APA Assembly luncheon at the Annual Meeting in San Diego, California.

Furthermore, Doctor Chou was invited, on behalf of APA resident leaders, to participate on a panel discussion during the Annual Meeting's Resident and ECP track. The panel, Evaluating Practice Opportunities and Benefits in your Early Career is aimed at helping the attendees navigate the non-clinical aspects of their careers. It will take place on Sunday, May 21 from 12:00 to 1:00 pm.

Like many Wisconsin psychiatrists, Doctor Chou has demonstrated a commitment to mentoring future psychiatrists. His inspiration and support of RFMs makes a tremendous difference that deserves commendation.

The Wisconsin Psychiatric Association (WPA) was founded in 1957 as a district branch of the American Psychiatric Association (APA). The organization is incorporated under the State of Wisconsin as a not-for-profit, professional medical specialty society. WPA represents more than 400 psychiatric physician members who are committed to continuously improving quality treatment for persons with mental illnesses.  To learn more, visit the WPA website (link).
