The Academy of Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry (ACLP) is an international organisation, based in the USA, which aims to improve the psychiatric care of people with medical illnesses.
Professor Michael Sharpe received the ACLP gavel from the previous President, Rebecca Weintraub Brendel of Harvard University, during the ACLP 2019 annual meeting in San Diego.
I am deeply honoured to be elected President of this world leading organisation that advocates for research, education and good practice in the psychiatric care of the medically ill - topics I have devoted my career to. In this role I shall be able to enrich our Department's already strong links to other leading research centres in the USA.
