Abstract

Rural child and adolescent psychiatry residency programs offer unique training opportunities with a distinct and underserved population. These programs also face the challenge of organizing teaching resources with maximum efficiency to compensate for low population density, geographical isolation, and a scarcity of available faculty. Using a case example, the authors describe the advantages of combining the use of a resource matrix with a set of program-specific priorities to design training opportunities for residents that simultaneously meet multiple program objectives. Potential results of this application may include expanded clinical services, new research opportunities, and easier recruitment of faculty.
