Abstract

Under the varied pressures of decreasing recruitment of American medical school graduates into psychiatry, the thrust of health care policymakers to decrease the production of specialist physicians, and financial cutbacks for training by hospitals, universities, and governments at all levels, many psychiatric training programs are considering downsizing or have already implemented plans to do so. The authors describe the motivations, early experiences, anticipated concerns, and thoughts regarding downsizing obtained from interviews or questionnaires provided by 17 programs in 1993. On the basis of the authors' experiences, some recommendations are offered for the many programs likely to deal with this issue in the future.
