ASCPT - Membership: Member of the Month

Arthur J Atkinson Jr., MD
ASCPT - Membership: Member of the Month American Society for Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics Member of the Month: Dr. Arthur J. Atkinson Arthur J Atkinson Jr., MD The ASCPT Member of the Month — a forum to recognize and thank a member of ASCPT who has supported the Society's endeavors. Each month ASCPT highlights ONE member who has gone above and beyond the call of duty! We hope you enjoy learning about your fellow members and always encourage your participation in Society events and activities. ASCPT is proud to recognize Dr. Arthur Atkinson Jr. as the December Member of the Month. Dr. Atkinson earned this recognition because of long-time service and dedication to ASCPT. Dr. Atkinson has been a member of ASCPT for almost 25 years. Dr. Atkinson is a highly-respected member of ASCPT and we would like to thank him for all he does for ASCPT. When asked why he supports ASCPT, Dr. Atkinson states, "ASCPT deserves the support of everyone who either is or aspires to be a clinical pharmacologist. For many years, our Society has put on a scientifically outstanding annual meeting that also provides an unparalleled networking opportunity. More recently, ASCPT has moved energetically to become the custodian of the leading journal in our field, to sponsor a number of exciting and timely conferences, to become a distributor of teaching materials for our discipline, and to provide an informative website that not only chronicles Society activities but lists both training and job opportunities. I believe that the vigor and health of our Society is a tribute to its current leadership and is something that we all should appreciate, particularly given the uncertain support that our discipline currently receives from other sectors." Thank you Dr. Atkinson.


Pressure Is Building on NIH to Reconsider Conflict Rules (washingtonpost.com)

Atkinson, 67, had been considering retirement, but the looming rule changes precipitated his decision, sources said. Atkinson, the latest to depart from NIH, could not be reached for comment yesterday.In addition to his advisory duties at the clinical center, he has been serving as director of the clinical pharmacology research associate training program -- a role that won him plaudits from PhDs for his teaching abilities. In 2000, he was named a "master" in clinical pharmacology by the American College of Physicians-American Society of Internal Medicine, "for his distinguished contributions to internal medicine."In 2003, he was the recipient of a distinguished service award from the American Society for Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics, of which he once served as president.
