Sheldon Miller, M.D. 

Sheldon I. Miller, M.D., the Lizzie Gilman Professor and chair of psychiatry at Northwestern University, will become the first psychiatrist representative to the ACGME in a decade.

The ACGME is an organization first established in 1972 as the Liaison Committee for Graduate Medical Education (LCGME) to accredit graduate medical programs. In 1981 the organization became the ACGME and adopted new bylaws and a new mission statement. Since 1972 the LCGME and subsequent ACGME have accredited roughly 8,000 graduate medical programs in the U.S.

In his new position, Miller will help develop policy in graduate medical education and will be in a position to give psychiatry a voice in this arena for the first time in 10 years.

Miller is a board-certified psychiatrist with subspecialty certification in addiction psychiatry. He has long been an active member of APA. He was the first chair of the APA Committee on Alcoholism in 1980 and went on to serve as chair of the Council on Addiction Psychiatry as well as other positions at APA. He is now a member of the Council on Medical Education and Career Development.

From 1996 to 1999 Miller served as chair of the Psychiatry Residency Review Committee, which sets policy and curricula for residency training programs in the United States. He also has served as a director of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology since 1991 and is now its vice president.

Miller’s academic work has centered on alcoholism and other addictions.

His bibliography includes almost 100 publications, and he has been a reviewer and editor of the American Journal of Addictions. Miller is a member of the American Academy of Psychiatrists in Alcoholism and Addictions and the Group for the Advancement of Psychiatry. ▪
