This paper describes the “beginning psychiatric training syndrome” experienced by the resident in his or her first year of psychiatric training. Major factors that influence the syndrome are the training environment & the resident’s personality. The authors stress the importance to the resident of identifying this condition, gaining insight into it, & dealing with it, rather than merely reacting to the stresses that create the syndrome. 17 Refs.
