Greeting from PA Caucus Chair

Hello and welcome!

The Program Administrator (PA) Caucus consists of AADPRT Program Administrator members across psychiatry training programs -- both general psychiatry and the subspecialty fellowships.

The PA Caucus is committed to fostering a supportive learning environment and furthering engagement in our positions.  Through the lens of nurturing diversity, inclusion, and equity and with the knowledge that everyone has something to contribute, we seek to provide opportunities for professional development thereby enhancing our ability to work collaboratively with program directors and support training of residents and fellows.

Over the years the Caucus has developed into a body of PAs committed to supporting our skills and knowledge development, wellness, and idea sharing.  Through committees focused on wellness, mentorship, professional development and communications, as well as planning for the annual Program Administrator Symposium at the AADPRT Annual Meeting, we bring our ideas and experiences to PAs at every level of their career.

If you are new to your role, I welcome your ideas for your professional development and growth.  For experienced PAs, I welcome your input and insights on how we can continue to strengthen and grow our skills and talents.

We are much-valued members of our training progams' leadership and AADPRT and I look forward to working with all of you.
