Addictions Treatment Training 

We hope that the readers of Academic Psychiatry will find this collection to have value in presenting state-of-the-art and practical ways for academicians to enhance addiction training across disciplines and levels of education. We extend our special thanks to the authors of the articles included in this collection, as they work every day to help fill the gap in treatment through their practice and academic work. Substance use disorders unfortunately continue to grow and affect patients in direct and indirect ways, often greatly shaping their lives. Reducing stigma, enhancing awareness, and promoting confidence in addiction treatment with psychiatrists and allied health professionals is imperative to the health of our patients,

Military and Veteran Patients’ Role in Training Early-Career Psychiatrists 

For more than a decade, the US military has engaged in combat operations, with frequent deployments for both service members and psychiatrists. Results include increased prevalence of trauma and stress disorders, emerging treatment strategies for war-time conditions, and challenges in recruiting, training, and retaining a volunteer force of soldiers and psychiatrists. Military medical providers train not only in federal facilities but also in medical schools and hospitals throughout the nation. The August issue features papers outlining training experiences in military psychiatry settings and describes innovative curricula and teaching to prepare psychiatrists for encountering, evaluating, and treating military psychiatric patients. Through this special collection, Academic Psychiatry readers have the opportunity to learn more about the military, training in military medicine, and the relationship of military medicine to academic psychiatry.

    Aims and Scope


    The Journal’s mission supports work that furthers knowledge and stimulates evidence-based advances in academic medicine in six key domains: education, leadership, finance and administration, career and professional development, ethics and professionalism, and health and well-being.

    Original articles present empirical research, systematic reviews, or critical analyses that inform one of these six key domains, important to academic psychiatry, behavioral sciences, and the health professions.

    Academic Psychiatry often assembles collections of papers on themes pertinent to its readership. The journal also invites full and brief empirical reports, as well as contributions to the educational resource column, the media column, commentaries, position papers, book reviews, poems, and letters to the editor.
