welcome to

Welcome to the web site of the American Association of Chairs of Departments of Psychiatry. Our organization represents the leaders of departments of psychiatry in all of the medical schools in the United States and Canada. As such, we are committed to promoting excellence in psychiatric education, research, and clinical care. We are also committed to advocating for health policy to create appropriate and affordable psychiatric care for all. The recent explosion of knowledge in the neurosciences is being quickly translated into new and better treatments for our patients and their families. We recognize the need for increased communication in this era of rapid change; the AACDP web site represents our efforts to use electronic communications more effectively and efficiently. We welcome your comments on the design and utility of this site.
