Psychiatric emergencies present unique challenges and require specialized knowledge and skills. Education plays a pivotal role in preparing residents to assess, stabilize and manage these emergencies. The ACGME requires that all general Psychiatry residents have experience in psychiatric emergencies. Beyond specifying that this competency should not be counted as part of the outpatient psychiatry requirement, and that on-call shifts alone cannot satisfy this requirement, there is very limited guidance. This presentation will highlight the importance of education (formal and informal), identify critical competencies, and review different approaches to emergency psychiatric and crisis care. This presentation will examine tools to enhance experiential learning opportunities. Discussion will include models of care and the various roles of residents in and outside of psychiatry and emergency medicine. As interest grows in emergency psychiatry and crisis care a leader is needed to establish best practices for the education of residents in psychiatric emergencies. We believe AAEP is that leader and this will become a roadmap for the education of residents.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Identify the role of residents in the psychiatric ED.
  2. Define education strategies.
  3. Map how the AAEP can be a leader in resident education.
