Abstract

Recent health care reform initiatives proposed training fewer medical specialists, including psychiatrists, and determining the size and location of training programs via centralized regulatory mechanisms. Facing such potential future developments, the American Association of Directors of Psychiatric Residency Training appointed a Task Force on the Quality of Residency Programs to develop informed recommendations for the field. This paper describes the Task Force's considerations and recommendations concerning how the least damaging and most effective decisions could be made regarding the distribution of residency positions, program size, and the future funding of training stipends. The recommendations emphasize voluntary decisions, feedback from local and regional stakeholders regarding perceived needs and demands for psychiatrists, and Federal or regional funding of postgraduate training stipends that are not primarily tied to providing clinical services.
