Alan K. Louie, M.D. is Professor, Associate Chair, and Director of Education in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Stanford University School of Medicine. His current focus is on (1) educational innovations in medical school, residency, and fellowships; (2) “Reimagining Mental Healthcare,” a special initiative focusing on digital technology, design thinking, and implementation science; and (3) the development of transdisciplinary collaborations and programs in psychiatry and behavioral health. With regards to the latter, he is seeking to establish a continuum of behavioral health education (across high school, college, medical school, residency, neuroscience training, continuing medical education, and public education and advocacy), through his teaching at Stanford University and deputy editorship of Academic Psychiatry, an international journal devoted to behavioral health education, career development, and leadership. His advocacy work aims to decrease stigma and discrimination against people suffering from mental illness, in diverse cultures and special populations.
He has conducted research in basic neuroscience, clinical psychiatry, and medical education and this breadth of experiences has enabled him to mentor learners with a wide range of interests within psychiatry. His publications have included investigation of the molecular mechanisms of opiate tolerance in the brain and neuroscience, behavioral pharmacology, alcoholism and drug abuse, anxiety and affective disorders, clinical psychopharmacology, and medical education. Among his awards are an individual National Research Service Award and a Physician Scientist Award (career development award) both from the National Institute of Mental Health. Of note, in medical education, Dr. Louie was awarded the Parker J. Palmer Courage to Teach Award from the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and from the American Psychiatry Association the Nancy Roeske Certificate of Excellence in Medical Student Education, the Irma Bland Award for excellence in Teaching Residents, and the Vestermark Psychiatry Educator Award.
After receiving his bachelor’s degree from Harvard College and his medical degree from Harvard Medical School, he pursued an internship in internal medicine at Stanford University Hospital, a psychiatric residency at the University of Chicago, and a fellowship in Neuropsychopharmacology at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). Dr. Louie subsequently had a distinguished career at UCSF over almost thirty years, including responsibilities as a Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, Director of the Anxiety and Affective Disorders Consultation Program, Acting Associate Director of Medical Student Education in Psychiatry, Co-Director of the Pre-Clerkship Psychiatry Curriculum, and Co-Director of the Brain, Mind, and Behavior course in the UCSF Essential Core Curriculum. Additionally, he has been the Training Director of the Psychiatry Residency of San Mateo County, co-designer of the San Mateo County – Stanford Community Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship, and Chair of Continuing Medical Education for San Mateo County Behavioral Health and Recovery Services.
