Psychiatric Services 2008; doi:
text A A A

Alan Schatzberg, M.D., a well-known researcher and president of the Board of Directors of American Psychiatric Publishing, Inc., has been chosen president-elect of the American Psychiatric Association (APA), receiving 59.6% of the votes. Dr. Schatzberg has been chair of the Department of Psychiatry at Stanford University since 1991 and is familiar to most psychiatrists as coauthor of the Textbook of Psychopharmacology and the Manual of Clinical Psychopharmacology.

David Fassler, M.D., who practices in Burlington, Vermont, was elected secretary-treasurer. Dr. Fassler, who won 59.3% of the votes, is completing his second three-year term as a trustee-at-large.

Of three candidates running for trustee-at-large, Dilip Jeste, M.D., from the University of California, San Diego, was elected.

A total of 10,053 APA members voted in this year's election—or 31% of those eligible to cast ballots, up from 29% last year. About a third of voters chose online balloting this year, similar to the proportion in 2007.

President-elect Nada Stotland, M.D., M.P.H., a Chicago psychiatrist, will succeed current president Carolyn Robinowitz, M.D. Dr. Stotland and her newly elected colleagues will take office at the conclusion of the association's annual meeting in Washington, D.C., May 3—8.
