As Dr. Mark Ehrenreich begins his term as Maryland Psychiatric Society (MPS) President this month, he has enlisted a highly capable team of committee chairs who will head up important MPS efforts to better serve the MPS members and the mental health needs of the citizens of Maryland. Additional committee members will be appointed later this month. A member survey will go out soon to gain insights into their priorities for the coming year.
Dr. Ehrenreich comes into this new role with deep MPS experience, including serving on the peer review and ethics committees and chairing the Distinguished Fellowship committee. He was elected multiple times by the membership to serve on the MPS Council (board of directors). He also served for many years as a Director of the Maryland Foundation for Psychiatry.
In his inaugural column in the May 2020 MPS News, he relates, “While I have been privileged to have excellent teachers, mentors, colleagues, and wonderful trainees with whom I have worked at the University, my involvement in the Maryland Psychiatric Society has enhanced my knowledge and broadened my perspective on the practice of psychiatry in our state. I have also found it to be tremendously personally and professionally rewarding.”
Mark Ehrenreich, M.D is board certified in General and Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry. For the past eight years he has been the chief of education and residency training director for the combined University of Maryland / Sheppard Pratt program. He is a graduate of Wesleyan University and received his medical degree from the University of Maryland School of Medicine, where he was a member of the Combined Accelerated Program in Psychiatry. He completed his psychiatry residency at the University of Maryland Department of Psychiatry. He has been a member of the University of Maryland Psychiatry faculty since residency and ran the consultation liaison psychiatry service there for 25 years.
