Alabama named in 100% Club for residency training programs
Congratulations to the University of South Alabama and Residency Program Director Luke Engeriser, MD, for being one of 11 residency training programs in the country to achieve Platinum Level status. The University of Alabama, under the leadership of Residency Program Director Laura Montgomery-Barefiled, MD, also achieved 100% membership status, and is listed as a Gold Level program.
The APA 100% Club was established to encourage residents throughout the United States and Canada to join the APA with fellow trainees in their programs.
Many psychiatric residency programs come very close to making 100% Club each year, but fall a little short. In order to honor those programs for their efforts, the 100% Club has been expanded to three levels of Gold, Silver and Bronze, as well as the addition of a Platinum level which will recognize programs that have been part of the 100% Club Gold level for the past five consecutive years.
