I was thinking about residency lengths and it seems with fellowship, psych is a pretty long residency choice. Going back to the original question though, should psych be a 3 year residency like family, internal, OB, or peds? I am a big fan of short residencies, but not it it affect the quality of the education. Is 4 years a good amount of time to get a good skill set for the field? And would Family, Peds, OB, and IM benefit from having an extra year like psych? I am interested in your opinions.
