Psychiatry Grand Rounds: EWALD W. BUSSE MEMORIAL LECTURE: "Neuromodulation: Past, Present, and Future"
Ewald W. (Bud) Busse, MD, ScD, was the second full time chair of the Duke Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, serving from 1953-1974. During his tenure the department grew to be the largest in the south with a heavy and eclectic research focus. Dr. Busse was an expert in the study of usual and successful aging, establishing the Duke Center for the Study of Aging and Human Development in 1954, now the oldest center continuing in existence in the western hemisphere. He held many offices during his career including President of the American Psychiatric Association, President of the International Association of Gerontology, and President of the American Geriatrics Society. Dr. Busse was also an early member of the Institute of Medicine. He retired from the chair of Psychiatry to become Dean of Medical Education for the medical school, serving in that position until 1982. The Busse Lecture was established in his honor in 1995 and has continued in his memory since his death in 2004. This year's Busse Memorial Lecturer is Mustafa Husain, MBBS, currently Professor of Psychiatry and Internal Medicine, Head of ECT Service, Director of the Neuro Stimulation Research Lab, and Chief of the Geriatric Psychiatry Division at UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas and formerly at Duke as Program Director of the Geriatric Psychiatry Fellowship and Vice-Chair for Faculty and Director of the Geriatric Psychiatry Division in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences.
