Are psychiatric educators "losing the mind"?

PDF of the full text article.
Abstract

Psychiatry is part of medicine, and developing competence to deal with the mental life of patients is an essential part of general medical as well as psychiatric subspecialty education. As psychiatry's neurobiological data base, therapeutic armamentarium, scope of interest, and philosophical views expand and competitive pressures for time in residency training are intensified, teaching in the mental sciences and opportunities for residents to develop solid psychodynamic diagnostic and therapeutic skills are rapidly disappearing. However, brain science does not yet, and probably never will, fully explain the mind. The author urges psychiatric educators not to give up the mind or, worse yet, lose it by default.
