A psychiatrist and expert in schizophrenia, Buckley also is a professor of psychiatry, pharmacology and radiology at MCG. Buckley has extensive experience in academic medicine and hospital administration. At MCG, he served 10 years as chair of the Department of Psychiatry prior to being named dean.
