Residents need CME, too
I applaud Dr. Henry Nasrallah’s forward thinking regarding encouraging creative new psychotropic drug development and supporting CME. CME programs—although vital for faculty and private practitioners—also are extremely valuable for residents, even though they don’t receive credit for completing the courses.
I would like to see your idea for a nonprofit, independent fund for CME activities take into account that all residency programs would need some support for CME and ensure that funding is equally distributed to programs large and small.
