Expand Your MPS Engagement in 2022!

With the start of a new year, some MPS members may be looking to get more from their membership in the Maryland Psychiatric Society.  Following are some of the offerings that are available and relatively easy to begin.

  • Member Spotlight Opportunity: Have you recently worked on an exciting research project? Reached a milestone in your career and want to share it with other MPS members? Have some good advice for younger psychiatrists who are just starting their careers? Submit a short article and photo through this Google Form to show-case your experiences with the MPS community.
  • Join the MPS Listserv: Join the online MPS community to quickly and easily share information with other MPS psychiatrists who participate. To join, click here. You will need to wait for membership approval and will be notified by email. If you have any problems, please email mps@mdpsych.org.
  • Curbside Conversations Resource: Over 20 topic areas with limited participation are available! Curbside Conversations facilitates member connections related to specific practice areas. Members with in-depth knowledge chat informally with other members seeking information. The discussions are not formal consultations, but rather a collegial resource offered voluntarily to others in the MPS community.
  • Medical Student Mentors Needed: The MPS is looking for members who would like to serve as mentors for MPS medical student members. As a practicing psychiatrist, you will help guide them throughout their medical school journey and help with their growth both personally and professionally. If you feel you would make a good mentor, please email mfloyd@mdpsych.org.
  • Enhance your Credentials: Apply for Fellow or Distinguished Fellow status. Visit the APA website for more details and a link to the application.

Other possibilities coming in March include voting in the MPS election, serving on a committee or joining an interest group.  Watch your email for details.
