Introducing MDedge Psychiatry

One of the key factors to success for any brand is the ability to recognize when it’s time to make a change to better serve your readers. Such a time has come for the web sites of sister publications CURRENT PSYCHIATRY and Clinical Psychiatry News, which are now joining forces as a single site. Clinical Psychiatry News Editor Gina Henderson and I are pleased to introduce MDedge Psychiatry (

MDedge Psychiatry incorporates all of the valued content from both of these trusted brands, plus exciting new content created solely for this site. MDedge Psychiatry provides busy psychiatric clinicians with a combination of CURRENT PSYCHIATRY’s practical, peer-reviewed, evidence-based articles with Clinical Psychiatry News’ timely, comprehensive daily news, conference coverage, and insightful commentary. The site’s enhanced design makes it easy for clinicians to quickly find the information they need to improve how they care for their patients.

MDedge Psychiatry’s editorial direction is led by Editor-in-Chief Lorenzo Norris, MD, a Clinical Psychiatry News Editorial Advisory Board member. CURRENT PSYCHIATRY Editor-in-Chief Henry A. Nasrallah, MD also plays a substantial role in shaping the editorial vision of MDedge Psychiatry.

One of the new features we’re most excited about is the MDedge Psychcast. This is a weekly podcast in which Dr. Norris interviews a fellow psychiatrist about issues that affect the practice of every psychiatric clinician. Also new on MDedge Psychiatry is the Opioid Resource Center, which includes articles from noted addition expert Mark Gold, MD. Plans call for additional podcasts, enhanced commentary and multimedia content, and much more.

While the printed editions of each publication will continue to be published as usual, we are seizing the opportunity to provide even more of our valuable content on this web site. We welcome you input on MDedge Psychiatry. Send comments to [email protected].
