GOALS AND OBJECTIVES FOR PGY-2 DIDACTICS
Goal: The overall goals of the PGY-2 didactics are to provide core knowledge of the diagnosis, pathophysiology, and treatment of DSM IV disorders; an introduction to principles and methods common to different forms of psychotherapy; an introduction to supportive therapy and motivational interviewing; an overview of psychodynamic case formulation; education in emergency psychiatry; and a survey of consultation-liaison psychiatry. These topics are intended to complement the PGY-2 resident's clinical rotations in inpatient, consultation-liaison, and emergency psychiatry, and to provide knowledge and skills needed as he or she begins continuity clinic and seeing patients for psychotherapy.
