Abstract

Exposure to child and adolescent forensic issues is limited in general psychiatry residency and child and adolescent psychiatry residency programs. There is no Graduate Medical Education Program for child and adolescent forensic psychiatry that is approved by the American Council on Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). Forensic psychiatry residency directors can create a child-focused forensic training opportunity that meets the needs of the ACGME program in forensic psychiatry. By creating didactic, clinical, and research experiences relevant to child and adolescent forensic psychiatric issues, this much-needed training can be provided to qualified psychiatrists.
