Past Wisconsin Medical Society President Clarence Chou, MD, of Mequon recently was selected by the American Psychiatric Association Assembly Committee of Resident-Fellow Member Representatives to receive the 2017 Assembly Resident-Fellow Member (RFM) Mentor Award. This honor showcases Dr. Chou’s outstanding work as a mentor and advocate for RFMs.
The award will be presented on Saturday, May 20, during the APA Assembly luncheon at the Annual Meeting in San Diego, California.
Doctor Chou was also invited, on behalf of APA resident leaders, to participate on a panel discussion during the Annual Meeting’s Resident and Early Career Psychiatrist track. The panel, Evaluating Practice Opportunities and Benefits in your Early Career is aimed at helping the attendees navigate the non-clinical aspects of their careers.
It’s not the first time Dr. Chou has been recognized for his commitment to the profession and the next generation of physicians. Last year, he received the Wisconsin Medical Society’s Presidential Citation for his leadership, mentorship and “enormous footprint in organized medicine” from outgoing President Jerry Halverson, MD.
Board certified in general psychiatry and child and adolescent psychiatry, Dr. Chou is also an associate clinical professor of psychiatry and behavioral medicine at the Medical College of Wisconsin, and has held numerous leadership positions at the state and national levels. He was Society president in 2007-2008 and a member of its Board of Directors for 11 years, serving as chair and vice chair, as well as a member of several committees, task forces and councils. He also is a past board member and president of the Medical Society of Milwaukee County and is very active in the American Medical Association (AMA) as well.
