Psychiatry Residency Training Becomes Even More Wimpy

The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education has reduced the amount of inpatient training necessary for psychiatry residents from a minimum of 9 months to a minimum of 6 months.
At least two psychiatrists who supervise residents say this reduction, which took place in July, “threatens to seriously undermine the quality of training for psychiatry residents.” In a commentary, Dr. Sabina Lim and Dr. Robert Rohrbaugh argue that inpatient training helps foster the development of psychiatry's fundamental skills in indispensable ways, and they note that other specialties appear to place great value on inpatient training (Academic Psychiatry 2007;31:266–9).
