So many psychiatric residency programs come very close to making the 100% Club each year, but fall a little short.  So in order to honor those programs for their efforts, the 100% Club has been expanded to three levels - Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze. The deadline for enrolling your general psychiatry residents is October 31 in order to qualify your training program for 100% Club membership for the current training year.  Individual recognition gifts as well as program rewards are included in all levels.  Don't miss the chance to be included, click on the link below for full details.
