CAGP Psychiatry RESIDENT AWARD (Closed)

The Canadian Academy of Geriatric Psychiatry will be offering 3 awards valued at $1,000 to help support a resident enrolled in a Canadian Psychiatry Residency Program that wishes to develop his or her interest in geriatric psychiatry.

Deadline for applications is April 27, 2018. Apply now!


  • The purpose of this award is to promote the development of future Canadian psychiatrists with a special interest in geriatric psychiatry.
  • The Award provides residents with the financial resources to attend the Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) of the Canadian Academy of Geriatric Psychiatry and to network with members of the CAGP.
  • The successful applicant will be asked to prepare a poster presentation, either briefly outlining a proposal or presenting results of scholarly activity at the CAGP Annual Scientific Meeting.
  • Following attendance at the ASM, if the full amount of the award has not been used, the resident may elect to use the remainder to support activities which promote his/her knowledge skills and experience in geriatric psychiatry.
  • There are a total of three CAGP Psychiatry Resident Awards available.
Applicant Requirements

Psychiatry residents accepted or enrolled in PGY-2, PGY-3, PGY-4 or PGY-5 of a postgraduate psychiatry training program in Canada as of July 2018, are a current CAGP Affiliate-in-Training member, and who have not been accepted into a geriatric psychiatry sub-specialty training program. If already accepted into a sub-specialty training program then we encourage the person to apply for the CAGP Geriatric Psychiatry Sub-Specialty Resident Award.

Please note that Affiliate-in-Training membership with the CAGP is FREE and is available to medical students or residents with an interest in geriatric psychiatry (who are not enrolled in a sub-specialty program). Click here for more details.
