Model Psychopharmacology Curriculum for Psychiatric Residency Programs, Training Directors, and Teachers of Psychopharmacology

Article Abstract

From our regular book review column.

The Model Psychopharmacology Curriculum is an ambitious effort to outline a model of how psychopharmacology should be taught, and it provides the core content of a psychopharmacology lecture series that extends across the 3 years of psychiatric residency training. It also represents the ongoing efforts of Ira Glick, M.D., the chair of the subcommittee of the American Society of Clinical Psychopharmacology responsible for this curriculum, and his collaborators, to update and expand upon work begun nearly 2 decades ago (with the American College of Neuropsychopharmacology) to develop a model core psychopharmacology curriculum. The focus of this work includes both basic science and clinical applications, with a greater emphasis on current clinical use of psychotropic medications. Such a focus enables this volume to have far greater applicability than the teaching of residents: it can function also as the core of an in-service education program in a variety of mental health settings.
