Academic Psychiatry Announcement

Dear Colleagues:

I am delighted to announce that our journal, Academic Psychiatry, will be published by Springer Science+Business Media, LLC, beginning in January of 2014. With this transition, I wish to express my deepest thanks to our old friends at the American Psychiatric Press — our wonderful partner of many years - and to our new friends at Springer who are working with us to take the journal to an international platform and a far-wider readership. This milestone was achieved through the great efforts over many months of our Governance Board — Michael Jibson, Janis Cutler, Carlos Pato, Sheldon Benjamin, and Bruce Levy.

The APA/AACDP Research Mentorship Award

Request for Submissions

This award is a jointly sponsored by the American Psychiatric Association and the American Association of Chairs of Departments of Psychiatry. The award honors an academic psychiatrist who has fostered the pursuit of student research in a significant manner within his/her university department. Though most nominees will have substantial experience in the direct mentorship of individual students, nominees who have promoted novel research-oriented training activities within a department or residency program will also be considered. The award consists of an inscribed plaque and a $1,500 honorarium, presented at the APA Annual Meeting.

Only one nomination from any department will be considered. Candidates for the award need not be limited to senior, well-established candidates; innovativeness and dedication will be honored at any academic level. Nominees must be members of APA.

Applications should include a brief statement highlighting the basis for the nomination, the nominee’s CV, and a list of the nominee’s mentees.

Deadline for submissions is July 31, 2014.

Graduate Medical Education Update September 2012

This is the latest of periodic updates I have been sending out regarding Graduate Medical Education funding issues.

Then, things should heat up likely in the lame duck session of Congress. First I will discuss some of the political issues pushing us toward something happening in GME, then examine some of the proposed legislation that gives us some idea what might happen.
