CONCLUSION: Psychiatry residents in this study overwhelmingly requested additional training focused on skills relevant to inpatient service, and the curriculum the authors developed led to a subjective self-reported understanding of and confidence in providing these psychotherapy skills on the inpatient unit. These very preliminary results suggest that provision of increased skills-based psychotherapy training for inpatient psychiatry residents is important and beneficial within resident education.
