Training Toolkit for Systems-Based Practice
To help child and adolescent psychiatry training programs meet the ACGME's mandated core competency in systems-based practice, the Work Group on Systems of Care created this training tool kit for child and adolescent psychiatry residency programs. The tool kit includes 13 modules, vignettes, and training director and resident FAQs, and was approved by AACAP Council in October 2009.
