Michelle Hume MD, PhD and Melanie Scharrer, MD, residents in the Psychiatry Residency Program at the University of Wisconsin, have been awarded Fellowships by the American Psychiatric Association.

Doctor Hume, a second-year resident, has been recognized with an APA/APAF Leadership Fellowship, designed to develop leaders in the field of organized psychiatry by providing opportunities for a psychiatry trainee to engage, interact and participate at a national level. The program creates opportunities to expand relationships with peers and national thought-leaders in the field of psychiatry. Doctor Hume will receive funding to attend two APA Annual Meetings, and two Components Meetings, including the full-day All Fellows’ Orientation. 

Doctor Scharrer, a third-year resident, has received a Public Psychiatry Fellowship, designed to create the next generation leaders in public psychiatry. This program creates opportunities for residents to participate in important APA activities, plan workshops at IPS, and interact with thought leaders in the field of public psychiatry. Doctor Scharrer will receive funding to attend two APA Institute on Psychiatric Services (IPS) meetings, and two Components Meetings.
