Supporting Residents in Indiana


The 2017 Indiana Psychiatric Society (IPS) Fall Symposium took place December 2 in Carmel, Indiana. The meeting topic was “The Opioid Epidemic: How Did We Get Here and Where Do We Go From Here.” The day was filled with active discussions on the Indiana State Department of Health actions to fight the crisis, opioid use during pregnancy and alternative strategies to eliminate use.

Five PRMS scholarships were awarded to Indiana University and Community Hospital psychiatry residents to attend the Fall Symposium. The doctors were very appreciative of PRMS’ support. Here is what one of the scholarship recipients said:

“Thank you very much for your sponsorship of resident scholarships to attend the Indiana Psychiatric Society Fall Symposium 2017. This is a unique learning opportunity, with a critically timed focus on the Opioid Epidemic, which affects so many of our patients. I greatly appreciate your support, and that of PRMS, in making this event possible, and for making it possible for me and many other resident physicians to attend. I am eager to share and apply the knowledge that I learn from this symposium, and thank you again for your generous support. Have a wonderful holiday season!” -PGY-2 Resident, Indiana University School of Medicine
