Meeting training needs of foreign psychiatric residents in state hospitals.


Foreign medical graduates entering psychiatric residency programs in the United States must cope with cultural, language, educational, and status barriers during their crucial first year of training. The authors point out the shortcomings of American residency programs for foreign trainees and describe how a program was developed to meet their special needs. It includes a more authoritarian form of instruction patterned after the educational structure the students were used to in their native countries and courses in American culture, English language, and problem-solving techniques.
