About AACP

The American Academy of Clinical Psychiatrists was founded in 1975 by George Winokur, MD, and others who shared the belief that a wealth of clinically relevant data can be found in every psychiatrist’s clinical experience. The organization provides a forum to share information for psychiatrists engaged in direct patient care, and to keep abreast of the latest scientific developments relevant to the practice of psychiatry.

Annals of Clinical Psychiatry is the official journal of the American Academy of Clinical Psychiatrists. Annals of Clinical Psychiatry publishes high-quality clinical articles that focus on the advancement of patient care. Contributions furnish psychiatric professionals and students with a continuing medical perspective on their discipline, addressing problems and concerns that arise in clinical practice as well as their potential solutions.

Current Psychiatry along with its Web site, www.MDedge.com/psychiatry, provides psychiatric practitioners with peer-reviewed, practical advice by leading authorities, emphasizing solutions to common clinical problems. Articles are solicited by an independent editorial board, undergo reader testing and peer review before publication, and are edited by a staff of professional medical journalists. In its 15th year of publication, CURRENT PSYCHIATRY also delivers live educational events and print and digital custom educational programs.
