Morristown, NJ, 10 February 2005 - Elsevier’s International Medical News Group (IMNG) is pleased to announce an educational alliance between the Neuroscience Education Institute (NEI) and Clinical Psychiatry News to create and deliver high quality medical education for psychiatrists and allied health professionals.

NEI has been recognized for its innovative contributions to psychiatric education through such awards as the 2002 Lundbeck International Neuroscience Foundation (LINF) Prize and the 2004 San Diego Psychiatric Society Education Prize. Under the direction of NEI’s distinguished founder and chairman, Stephen M.
