The Association of Women Psychiatrists is pleased to announce its annual call for applications for the AWP Fellowship and the Alexandra and Martin Symonds Foundation Fellowship.

Enclosed are the set of criteria for each fellowship. An individual resident may be nominated for only one of the two fellowships.
The Association of Women Psychiatrists seeks to improve communication among women in psychiatry with a goal of advancing more women into leadership positions in all aspects of health care.

Dear AWP Members,
On behalf of the leadership of the Association of Women Psychiatrists and myself, I would like to express our deepest sympathies to the families of the 20 beautiful and innocent children massacred in Connecticut and to the families and friends of the brave principal and 5 teachers at Sandy Hook Elementary who heroically died trying to protect them. Our thoughts and prayers are with those most deeply affected in these saddest of days in our country's history. We stand ready with our colleagues to join in the efforts to alleviate the suffering of the survivors as they struggle to cope with life after such unimaginable trauma and loss.
The unspeakable acts of gun violence on December 14, 2012 in Newtown call for action NOW to do all that we can to prevent these senseless killings. We must not accept that we cannot meaningfully address the gun violence and mass killings which have become epidemic in our society. We must not accept that we cannot find solutions to this complex problem, which include serious consideration of banning military-type assault weapons and high capacity ammunition clips, improving and increasing access to quality mental health treatment across all settings, and addressing our society's culture of violence. We must not allow ourselves to have these horrific events fade from our memories until the next one. We must act NOW.
The Winter 2012 edition of E-News For Women in Psychiatry, the newsletter of the AWP, is now available to members only.
Dear AWP Colleague,
Our membership continues to grow as more amazing women join our ranks. Local chapters have formed and flourished and we have continued to expand our international memberships and global initiatives. AWP continues to offer highly competitive fellowships each year. These fellowships offer truly outstanding women currently in training the opportunity to actively participate in the APA and AWP Annual Meetings and fosters their career development through mentoring. We continue to honor deserving women and men who are dedicated to improving the lives and care of women in their communities and across the globe through a number of prestigious AWP awards.
