Midwest AAPL is pleased to announce the continuation of the Resnick Scholarships and Margolis Scholarships to support residents‘ attendance at the 2019 Annual Meeting. What are the Resnick and Margolis Scholarships? Named to honor our esteemed senior colleagues Phillip J. Resnick, M.D. and Phillip Margolis, M.D., these scholarships are stipends awarded each year to 3-5 residents to help them defray costs of attending the Annual Meeting.

The Resnick Scholar Award is a merit-based award bestowed upon trainees who have demonstrated a strong record of achievement and interest in forensic psychiatry.  PGY3, PGY4 and non-forensic psychiatry fellows from programs in the United States are eligible.  We will have TWO Resnick Scholars in 2019.  The award will cover meeting registration and hotel room charges for one night.

The Margolis Travel Scholarship is an award established to encourage PGY1 and PGY2 residents with Midwest connections (training in, or planning to do a fellowship or working in the Midwest post-graduation), get exposure in the field of forensic psychiatry.  We will have THREE Margolis Travel Scholars in 2019.  The award will cover meeting registration and hotel room charges for one night. 

In addition, we are proud to announce the Douglas Mossman Trainee and Early-Career Research Award! This award is in honor of Dr. Douglas Mossman, one of the best teachers and educators in the field of forensic psychiatry.

The Mossman Research Award recognizes scholarship in forensic psychiatry.  Senior trainees (PGY3 and above inclusive of all fellows) and early career forensic psychiatrists (five or less years out of forensic fellowship) who have completed or who are in the process of working on forensic psychiatry research projects are eligible.  ONE Mossman Award winner will be selected in 2019.
