  • Trends in MD/PhD Graduates Entering Psychiatry: Assessing the
           Physician-Scientist Pipeline
    • Authors: Melissa R. Arbuckle; Sean X. Luo; Harold Alan Pincus; Joshua A. Gordon; Joyce Y. Chung; Mark Chavez; Maria A. Oquendo
      Abstract: Objective The goal of this study was to identify trends in MD/PhD graduates entering psychiatry, to compare these trends with other specialties, and to review strategies for enhancing the physician-scientist pipeline. Methods Data on 226,588 medical students graduating from Liaison Committee on Medical Education accredited programs between 1999 and 2012 (6626 MD/PhDs) were used to evaluate the number, percentage, and proportion of MD/PhDs entering psychiatry in comparison with other specialties (neurology, neurosurgery, internal medicine, family medicine, and radiation oncology). Linear regression and multiple linear regression determined whether these values increased over time and varied by sex. Results Over 14 years, an average of 18 MD/PhDs (range 13–29) enrolled in psychiatry each year. The number of MD/PhDs going into psychiatry significantly increased, although these gains were modest (less than one additional MD/PhD per year). The proportion of students entering psychiatry who were MD/PhDs varied between 2.9 and 5.9 per 100 residents, with no significant change over time. There was also no change in the percentage of MD/PhDs entering psychiatry from among all MD/PhD graduates. The rate of increase in the number of MD/PhDs going into psychiatry did not differ significantly from other specialties except for family medicine, which is decreasing. The rate of MD/PhDs going into psychiatry was higher for women, suggesting closure of the sex gap in 17 years. Conclusions Despite the increase in the number of MD/PhDs entering psychiatry, these numbers remain low. Expanding the cohort of physician-scientists dedicated to translational research in psychiatry will require a multipronged approach.

  • The 2016 Survey of the Association of Directors of Medical Student
           Education in Psychiatry
    • Authors: Lia A. Thomas; Gary Beck Dallaghan; Richard M. Balon
      Abstract: Objective The members of the Association of Directors of Medical Student Education in Psychiatry (ADMSEP) had been last surveyed in 2010 to identify trends in medical student education in psychiatry, teaching methods, academic productivity, and administrative issues. With increasing requirements, ADMSEP members were surveyed in 2016 to characterize current expectations for and needs of medical student educators in psychiatry. Methods A 53-item survey was sent to members of ADMSEP (n=260) and to clerkship directors nationwide. The current survey expanded past surveys with questions about current issues in medical education. Questions included categorical and scaled items (1 = strongly disagree to 5 = strongly agree). All ADMSEP members were invited to complete the survey, but half of the questions were for those who identified as clerkship directors. The survey was sent electronically with two reminders. Results The survey had a response rate of 42.7%. Half identified themselves as clerkship directors (49.5%), with an average of 6 years as both a clerkship director and member of ADMSEP. Respondents noted that being involved in education (mean 4.1) and ADMSEP (mean 4.2) were a benefit to their career, and also reported that they had adequate access to faculty resources. Respondents also reported concerns with access to educational research consultants and personnel management. Conclusion Results of the 2016 ADMSEP survey echoed previous membership surveys. However, training in personnel management, diminishing faculty resources, and compensation for education time emerged in this survey. Conducting a membership survey continues to provide beneficial information regarding the administration and education that occurs within psychiatry clerkship. Additionally, topics meriting further details have been identified that will be investigated in future membership surveys.

  • From Information to Simulation: Improving Competency in ECT Training Using
           High-Fidelity Simulation
    • Authors: Anetta Raysin; Brian Gillett; Joseph Carmody; Nidhi Goel; Scot McAfee; Theresa Jacob
      Abstract: Objective This study was intended to develop a new educational model that supplements ECT didactics with simulation-based procedural training and to evaluate the learning gains conferred by such a curriculum. Methods Two types of curricula were evaluated for educational efficacy in this prospective randomized controlled trial. Psychiatry residents (n = 35) completed surveys to ascertain their baseline experience, knowledge, and proficiency with the ECT procedure. They were then block-randomized to receive either a didactic ECT curriculum (non-SIM) or one augmented by simulation training (SIM). Three months post-completion of the two types of instruction, all residents were re-administered the surveys and a procedural post-assessment. Results The median number of ECTs performed prior to the study was similar between the two groups (SIM group = 3, non-SIM group = 4.) The SIM group showed significant improvement on pre- and post- survey theoretical knowledge scores: 51% (95% CI = 41 to 61%) and 69% (95% CI = 64 to 74%), respectively, p = .02; this difference was not significant in the non-SIM group, p = .2. Improvement between pre- and post- proficiency scores were seen in the SIM group: 22% (95% CI = 13 to 32%) and 51% (95% CI = 53 to 59%), p < .001 while the effect was less pronounced in the non-SIM group. Inter-rater agreement for the proficiency assessment was excellent: k, = .9. Conclusions Residents showed significant improvement in knowledge, comfort, and skills following ECT simulation training. With the proposed curriculum, residents would receive comprehensive education not only in the theory behind ECT but also in procedural skills. This curriculum can be modeled in other programs that do not have extensive ECT facilities.

  • Residents Teaching Residents: Results of an Interdisciplinary Educational
           Endeavor
    • Authors: Mark B. Warren; Emily P. Hutchison; Jonathan DeHaan; Alison J. Krause; Mark P. Murphy; Merrill L. Velez
      Abstract: Objectives Resident physicians across disciplines are engaged in teaching at multiple levels. Available literature focuses on medical student education and intra-disciplinary teaching. The national shortage of psychiatrists coupled with an increasing mental illness burden necessitates development of creative interdisciplinary collaboration. The authors report on an interdisciplinary, resident-to-resident didactic series assessing whether such a model could improve internal medicine resident comfort with managing psychiatric illness on inpatient medical wards. Methods Internal medicine residents were assessed regarding their comfort level with managing certain common inpatient psychiatric presentations before and after the delivery of a teaching curriculum designed and delivered by psychiatry residents. Results Internal medicine residents’ overall confidence with identifying and managing common psychiatric problems on inpatient medical wards improved. Comfort level with managing depression and demoralization and determining decisional capacity both improved to a statistically significant degree. Conclusions Collaborative, interdisciplinary care is complex and its benefits can be difficult to assess. Data from this study showed that interdisciplinary teaching at the resident level has the potential to be an effective means for building collaboration and can lead to a subjective improvement in comfort managing common inpatient psychiatric presentations on medical wards. Additionally, qualitative observations suggest that such an intervention can improve interdisciplinary collaboration.

  • Web-Based Tools and Mobile Applications To Mitigate Burnout, Depression,
           and Suicidality Among Healthcare Students and Professionals: a Systematic
           Review
    • Authors: Sarah Pospos; Ilanit Tal Young; Nancy Downs; Alana Iglewicz; Colin Depp; James Y. Chen; Isabel Newton; Kelly Lee; Gregory A. Light; Sidney Zisook
      Abstract: Objective Being a healthcare professional can be a uniquely rewarding calling. However, the demands of training and practice can lead to chronic distress and serious psychological, interpersonal, and personal health burdens. Although higher burnout, depression, and suicide rates have been reported in healthcare professionals, only a minority receive treatment. Concerns regarding confidentiality, stigma, potential career implications, and cost and time constraints are cited as key barriers. Web-based and mobile applications have been shown to mitigate stress, burnout, depression, and suicidal ideation among several populations and may circumvent these barriers. Here, we reviewed published data on such resources and selected a small sample that readily can be used by healthcare providers. Methods We searched PubMed for articles evaluating stress, burnout, depression, and suicide prevention or intervention for healthcare students or providers and identified five categories of programs with significant effectiveness: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (online), meditation, mindfulness, breathing, and relaxation techniques. Using these categories, we searched for Web-based (through Google and beacon.anu.edu.au—a wellness resource website) and mobile applications (Apple and mobile.va.gov/appstore) for stress, burnout, depression, and suicide prevention and identified 36 resources to further evaluate based on relevance, applicability to healthcare providers (confidentiality, convenience, and cost), and the strength of findings supporting their effectiveness. Results We selected seven resources under five general categories designed to foster wellness and reduce burnout, depression, and suicide risk among healthcare workers: breathing (Breath2Relax), meditation (Headspace, guided meditation audios), Web-based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (MoodGYM, Stress Gym), and suicide prevention apps (Stay Alive, Virtual Hope Box). Conclusions This list serves as a starting point to enhance coping with stressors as a healthcare student or professional in order to help mitigate burnout, depression, and suicidality. The next steps include adapting digital health strategies to specifically fit the needs of healthcare providers, with the ultimate goal of facilitating in-person care when warranted.

  • Teaching Empathy: the Implementation of a Video Game into a Psychiatry
           Clerkship Curriculum
    • Authors: Andrew Chen; Jessie J. Hanna; Adithya Manohar; Anthony Tobia
      Abstract: Objective Empathy plays an important role for physicians, but the literature demonstrates that it often deteriorates during medical school. The purpose of this study is to investigate the use of the interactive video game “That Dragon, Cancer” as a tool to teach empathy to third-year medical students. Methods The authors gave a modified, Jefferson Scales of Physician Empathy (JSPE) to 84 third-year medical students in their psychiatry clerkship before and after they played and completed “That Dragon, Cancer” during the 2016–2017 academic calendar year. Results The average level of empathy in the students as measured by least squares means of the answers to the truncated JSPE improved after playing through “That Dragon, Cancer” (5.7738 vs 6.2322, p < 0.0001). The majority of students agreed that learning empathy through video games was preferable and more effective than traditional didactics. Conclusions Interactive video games such as “That Dragon, Cancer” may be useful as part of innovative curricula to improve empathy among third-year medical students.
