During this workshop, we will split up the stages of building a new program into the following- Stage 1, Stage 2 and Stage 3. Stage 1 will focus on applying for initial accreditation, gathering faculty and sites, the first recruitment season, building/creating a curriculum, program planning and the first full cycle of GME including match, onboarding, orientation, CCC/PEC, wellness and more. Stage 2 will focus on more program planning, including building a new clinic, building electives, adding faculty, faculty development, continued accreditation site visit, building a senior curriculum and chief resident selection. Stage 3 will discuss board prep and board passing rates, graduation, preparing residents for job searches, having a chief resident, recruiting own residents, expanding the residency/adding fellowships or a rural track, the transition for faculty and residents in a growing program. We plan to provide program administrators with the knowledge they need to build a new program and discuss some key factors that specifically affect a new and upcoming psychiatry residency program.
