The SPCAP, composed of the heads of child and adolescent psychiatry programs, seeks to aggressively
promote the field of academic child and adolescent psychiatry.
A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
Welcome to Society of Professors of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (SPCAP). The Society of
Professors helps heads of child and adolescent psychiatry strengthen their existing programs,
patient care, and research. The Society of Professors provides a forum for discussion and
exchange of ideas between the child and adolescent psychiatry program directors in medical schools in the United States and elsewhere for the purposes of:
- Enhancing the growth and development of child and adolescent psychiatry as a discipline;
- Strengthening graduate and postgraduate medical education, patient care and research in the area of child and adolescent psychiatry; and
- Providing appropriate liaison between academic child and adolescent psychiatry as represented by the membership and administrative persons and organizations in medical education (e.g., departments of psychiatry, medical school deans, and specialty boards), government, research, and health care delivery to forward our objectives.
The strength of the SPCAP is in its collaborations, fellowship, and advocacy efforts that have a positive
impact on our profession.
Please plan to attend the 48th Annual Meeting in Washington, DC in 2013. Once again, SPCAP is joining
AACAP for its Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill.
If you are interested in learning more about the SPCAP, please contact Earl Magee (email@example.com or
