Welcome to PsychSIGN!
The Psychiatry Student Interest Group Network is a national network of medical students interested in psychiatry, from those with a rough interest in the brain and mind to those already in the residency application and match process. We connect students across the country to their peers, to psychiatry residents, and to practicing psychiatrists from a broad range of subspecialties. We provide mentoring opportunities, resources for your health and career, and ideas for expanding your interest group.
PsychSIGN holds an annual conference in conjunction with the APA Annual Meeting. The first meeting was held in May 2006 in Toronto, ON and drew over 100 students representing 60 medical schools. In 2013, we hosted our 8th annual conference in San Francisco, California. In addition, PsychSIGN holds a number of regional conferences throughout the year, often in conjunction with professional meetings such as the Institute on Psychiatric Services, the American Medical Association National Meeting, and the Annual Meeting of the Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.
