Since my program is so small and there is not much interest among my peers in geriatric psychiatry, it was wonderful to be surrounded by so many people that share my interest. It was also great to see successful and happy people in the field.
Thank you for the time and effort you put into the Scholars programming at the AAGP conference. I had a wonderful experience meeting other practitioners and fellow residents and am excited about completing a project and working with my mentor during the upcoming year. It was wonderful to be in such a collegial atmosphere and the passion for geriatric psychiatry was definitely contagious.
Thank you for the opportunity to present at this year's AAGP. I have greatly treasured my experiences as an honors program scholar and as an alumnus. The AAGP community is incredibly supportive and interested in my training and future. I am grateful to have been able to make very fruitful and positive connections during the conferences.
I cannot overstate what a positive experience the Scholars Program was for me, particularly being able to meet other medical students and potential mentors who share my interest in Geri-psych. I am looking forward to coming to next year's AAGP meeting and reconnecting with the people I met this year.
Thank you for the opportunity to participate in the AAGP Scholars Program. I'm grateful for everyone's hard work, to donors for their generous contributions, AAGP members for their interest in trainee's professional and personal development, and to everyone for being so sweet and approachable.
Thank you again for the opportunity to participate in AAGP's annual meeting. I really enjoyed learning about geriatric psychiatry as well as meeting such a warm and caring group of doctors and students. I could see that a lot of work went into the scholars program and I am very grateful to have been a part of it. Geriatric psychiatry will definitely be on my radar as I start residency this summer.
