James W. Jefferson Memorial Lecture
James Walter Jefferson, MD (1937-2019)
Professor Emeritus in the Department of Psychiatry
University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health

Dr. Jefferson epitomized the values and virtues of an outstanding physician, teacher and academic. The UW Department of Psychiatry is honored to offer an annual lecture in his memory.

Jeff, as he was affectionately known, taught generations of psychiatrists and other health care professionals to provide high quality, evidence-based mental health care. He became an international expert in the use of lithium, the gold-standard treatment of bipolar disorder. He co-founded and co-ran a
biannual regional continuing medical education conference for nearly forty years – a tradition which the Department of Psychiatry continues as the University of Wisconsin Annual Update & Advances in Psychiatry Conference.

Jeff received his medical degree from the University of Wisconsin and completed an internship at St. Luke’s Hospital in New York City, residency in Internal Medicine at the University of Wisconsin, and fellowship in Cardiology at the University of Chicago. After serving as a research cardiologist in the  U.S. Army, he returned to Madison for Psychiatry residency training. His remarkable career spanned more than five decades and included opening the
Lithium Clinic at UW in 1973 and founding the Lithium Information Center, which ultimately collected over 40,000 articles for patients and professionals. He served as President of Healthcare Technology Systems and was a Distinguished Senior Scientist at the Madison Institute of Medicine. Jeff was a prolific author, highly respected lecturer nationally and internationally, and the recipient of numerous accolades.

Each year, the Department of Psychiatry invites one distinguished speaker who embodies Jeff’s spirit – being a consummate clinician, academic and colleague while advancing the evidence-based care of people suffering from mental illness – to give the James W. Jefferson Memorial Lecture during the Annual Update & Advances in Psychiatry Conference.

We are delighted that Dr. Shelly Greenfield, Chief Academic Officer and Kristine M. Trustey Endowed Chair in Psychiatry at Harvard - Mass General Brigham McClean, will deliver the 2023 memorial lecture.
