The Group for the Advancement of Psychiatry is a think tank of leading psychiatric minds whose thoughtful analysis and recommendations serve to influence and advance modern psychiatric theory and practice. GAP is comprised of 200 members from across the US and Canada who meet twice a year and produce content on topical issues in psychiatry.
The GAP Fellowship is a program for outstanding residents and fellows who are given the unique opportunity to work collaboratively in an informal setting with leaders in psychiatry.
GAP fellows become members of working committees for four meetings over two years. Fellows contribute to the writing projects of their committees. In addition to their committee responsibilities, the Fellows develop a plenary presentation on a topic of their choice, presented to the general GAP membership at the Fellows' final meeting.
