Postgraduate Year 1 Psychiatry Resident Training in Addiction Psychiatry
Currently, the PGY I Addiction Psychiatry training consists of a four-week rotation. This is part of a 3 month block of psychiatry training that also includes Emergency Psychiatry and Consult Liaison Psychiatry. The overall the focus is on the developmental needs of the Resident i.e. developing core competencies of understanding the basics of addiction medicine and psychiatry, how to manage acute states of intoxication and withdrawal, approaches to treatment (e.g. pharmacology and motivational enhancement techniques), and experiencing different settings for treatment intensity (e.g. withdrawal management units, day treatment programs, out-patient clinics etc). Exposure to the above with processing from supervisors will focus on developing professional attitudes and behaviours for dealing with addiction.
