The American Neuropsychiatric Association (ANPA), established in 1988, is a non-profit organization of professionals in neuropsychiatry, behavioral neurology, neuropsychology and the clinical neurosciences. ANPA has over 500 members from around the world. ANPA's Mission is to improve the lives of people with disorders at the interface of psychiatry and neurology.

 Welcome from the President

Welcome to the American Neuropsychiatric Association (ANPA) homepage. Founded in 1988, ANPA is the premier national organization of clinicians and investigators in the interdisciplinary areas of behavioral neurology and neuropsychiatry.  The annual ANPA meeting continues to be one of the best continuing education meetings in all of medicine, featuring renowned researchers, clinicians and educators in neuropsychiatry, behavioral neurology, neuropsychology and the cognitive neurosciences. ANPA meetings are unique in that all participants attend all of the presentations together and are a great place to obtain continuing education credits, and network with like-minded individuals from around the world. The poster and platform presentation are high visibility forums for both junior and senior clinician scientists to showcase clinical and research findings. ANPA membership is open to students, trainees, practitioners and researchers. The official journal of the American Neuropsychiatric Association is the Journal of Neuropsychiatry and Clinical Neurosciences, edited by Stuart Yudofsky, MD. Browse the current website, and come back often as we update the site to reflect new trends in neuropsychiatry and behavioral neurology, and introduce new features to enhance member benefits and thereby help advance the care of our patients.

 Gary J. Tucker M.D. Award for Lifetime Achievement in Neuropsychiatry
Robert G. Robinson, MD, FANPA received the 2015 Gary J Tucker Award for Lifetime Achievement in Neuropsychiatry at the 26th annual meeting of the American Neuropsychiatric Association (ANPA) in Orlando on March 28, 2015.  Dr. Robinson is Professor in the Department of Psychiatry, at the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine in Iowa City, Iowa.  He served as the Paul W. Penningroth Professor and Head of Psychiatry at University of Iowa from 1990 to 2011 and served as president of the American Neuropsychiatric Association in 1998-1999.  The award, established in memory of Dr. Gary J Tucker, former Chair of the University of Washington Department of Psychiatry, past president of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, former chair of the Dartmouth Department of Psychiatry, and an early ANPA leader, is the highest honor awarded by ANPA.
 
Characterizing Dr. Robinson as “one of the giants of Neuropsychiatry who moved the field forward by establishing the neuropsychiatry of stroke as a core aspect of neuropsychiatry practice,” Sheldon Benjamin, MD, Professor of Psychiatry and Neurology at University of Massachusetts Medical School and ANPA President, recognized Dr. Robinson for his seminal work on the neuropsychiatry of stroke; his seven textbooks on both the neuropsychiatry of stroke and on psychosomatic medicine; his more than 350 peer-reviewed papers and 84 chapters published to date; and his major contributions as a former President of ANPA and a longtime advisor to the organization.  In presenting the award, Benjamin described Robinson's relationship to ANPA as “author, teacher, scientist, and mentor."
 
ANPA is a major professional and scientific organization for neuropsychiatrists,behavioral neurologists, and neuropsychologists, dedicated to improving the lives of people with disorders at the interface of psychiatry and neurology.  The Gary J. Tucker Lifetime Achievement Award in Neuropsychiatry recognizes individuals who, as did Dr. Tucker, demonstrate lifelong achievement in neuropsychiatry and years of service to the American Neuropsychiatric Association.
