The authors surveyed 22 psychiatric educators to determine their views of the basic knowledge and skills that should be required for all psychiatric residents. A comprehensive document of educational objectives facilitated practical differentiation of responses. Diagnostic, problem-solving, and treatment-dispositional skills were particularly highly ranked. Such data may be useful in defining the progession of psychiatry as well as in curriculum planning.
