The American Psychosomatic Society (APS) is pleased to accept applications for the 2020 class of the Young Investigator Colloquium. The purpose of this half-day Colloquium is to bring together the expertise of senior mentors paired with postgraduate “rising star” trainees (i.e., physician fellows, residents, and postdoctoral fellows). The selected trainees will be paired with a mentor that share similar interests. The goal of the Colloquium is to contribute to the academic success of each participant. Each attendee will have the opportunity to present his/her proposed research in order to receive productive feedback.
