A time cohort comparison was conducted, via questionnaire, with Canadian psychiatry residents in 1990 and 2004 regarding their education and training in eating disorders (EDs). Instruction and clinical experiences in EDs were not perceived as adequate by senior residents in either cohort, although increases in instruction and clinical opportunities were reported in 2004. Both cohorts endorsed mandatory instruction on EDs. Negative attitudes towards EDs were encountered in training environments. Most respondents indicated some interest in working with EDs. It is recommended that training programs continue to strengthen their EDs content and ensure that residents are exposed to treatment research literature.
