The authors surveyed current opportunities and research training
practices in psychiatric residency programs. Although most programs offer
at least a journal club and manb state that research experiences are
available, very limited research resources are available to residents in
many programs. The availability of research teaching is quite variable, and
few programs budget or spend money for resident research. Further, very few
programs require any direct reesarch experience. These findings offer a
partial explanation for the shortage of research psychiatrists.
