Abstract

Psychiatric trainees and educators alike know that significant impairment may occur during training. Although psychiatry programs can do much to identify, treat, and prevent traineee impairment, barriers that may hinder programs from adequately addressing the problems of the impaired trainee continue to exist. These barriers include stigmatization and rejection of the impaired trainee, lack of focus on primary prevention, problematic supervisor-resident relationships, and trainee resistance to intervention. An atmosphere of candor and support, impairment-related seminars, and informed and alert supervisors can be helpful in easing the stress of training and reducing trainee impairment.
