The Medical University of South Carolina is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

**  The Peter Bassoe Lecture

Dr. Peter Bassoe (1874-1945) was a Chicago-based neurologist-neuropsychiatrist as well as the founder and inaugural President of the Central Neuropsychiatric Association (CNPA, est. 1922). Dr. Bassoe founded the CNPA “to foster the advancement of neurologic, neurosurgical, and psychiatric sciences in the mid-continental United States.” Guided by his vision, this organization flourished during the decades of the mid-twentieth century. The Peter Bassoe Fund was established within the CNPA in 1982 for the purpose of providing funds for continuing education activities, scholarships, awards for essays submitted by residents, and other expenses of the scientific portion of the meeting.

In 2001, following several decades of changes to the organizational and political landscape in the clinical neurosciences, CNPA merged with ANPA. As a component of the merger agreement between our associations, CNPA directed ANPA to use the Bassoe Fund to support a Keynote Address at the ANPA annual meeting and to identify it as the Peter Bassoe Lecture.

In tribute to Dr. Bassoe and CNPA, the Peter Bassoe Lecture is given by a world-class clinical neuroscientist at  the ANPA Annual Meeting. The lecture provides a forum for a high-level review in the area of neuroscience to which the Peter Bassoe Lecturer has contributed. Additionally, it provides an opportunity for the lecturer to discuss the implications of his or her work on the education and training of clinician-neuroscientists, including subspecialists in behavioral neurology & neuropsychiatry.
