AOA Approved Psychiatry Residency
The Residency Training Program in General Psychiatry of the Palm Beach Centre for Graduate Medical Education offers a four-year training program. The Program encompasses training in adult and child psychiatry and is geared around the overall training objective of teaching residents the fundamentals of acute and long-term treatment of psychiatric patients. The Program offers training in the biological, psychological, behavioral, and socio-cultural aspects of psychiatry and strives to prepare residents for successful careers that emphasize clinical practice, scholarship, teaching and research. The program will provide training that will allow the resident to develop adequate skills to organize and record data, such as history, mental status examination, diagnostic techniques and procedures, and laboratory tests in the initiation of appropriate therapy.
Physicians in the specialty of general psychiatry are proficient in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of psychiatric disorders and the common medical and neurological disorders that relate to psychiatry. The osteopathic concepts of caring for the whole patient and the incorporation of osteopathic principles of the integrated function between the musculoskeletal and nervous system must be incorporated into the program. This will be done through emphasis on the utilization of osteopathic principles and practices as a key component of the Residency Program in Psychiatry residency training and integrated throughout the program. Training will incorporate the application of osteopathic diagnostic and therapeutic measures as they relate to the total care of the patient. Therefore residents will be required to demonstrate competence and knowledge in the essential osteopathic principles appropriate to this specialty. Osteopathic principles and practices are incorporated throughout the program, for a total of 40 hours throughout the program with a minimum of 10 hours of instruction documented for each year of training of an approved program in general osteopathic philosophy and principles, including items of structural diagnosis and osteopathic manipulative medicine.
