The author describes the need for psychiatric residency programs to teach administration and management. Under existing conditions, many graduated residents will go on to occupy management and leadership positions in psychiatry without the benefit of formal training. The author outlines a new core curriculum exposing PGY-3 and PGY-4 residents to the principles of administration, leadership, politics, and health care finance with clinical case vignettes. This core curriculum was implemented in a New York City community hospital residency training program in 2001. The results of the residents’ response to this new curriculum in a survey are also discussed.
