Abstract

EM-PSYCH is a scheduling database for training programs. It stores scheduling records and generates schedules and letters informing students, supervisors, and advisors of deadlines. Since EM-PSYCH was originally designed for a psychoanalytic institute, the institute model is presented as well as the database model to illustrate how the database program can be applied. EM-PSYCH is very user friendly and makes scheduling and sending reminders efficient and easy. It can handle any number of trainees and can be modified for any number of years or schedule interval. It can be easily adapted for psychiatric residencies, medical student education, psychology internships, and other training programs.
