In order to ensure that all future physicians receive essential education in child, adolescent, and family mental health, we need to increase exposure to CAP in the undergraduate curriculum. ADMSEP Council has approved a list of benchmark CAP learning objectives. To help you implement these objectives, we have put together a toolbox of online resources that you may find helpful.
These resources are a collaborative work in progress! The CAPME Task Force will add categories and resources as needed. If you don't see what you are looking for, please send suggestions to Geri Fox at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will work on getting it for you. We welcome your contributions, feedback, and suggestions. If you have additional resources to share, please email email@example.com.
1. Life-Span Development. (L.O. #1)
2. CAP topics (to teach in Psychopathology course, clerkship lectures, workshops, etc.):
II. Clinical Exposure
III. Research and Mentoring
IV. Psychiatry Interest Group/PsychSIGN
Assign a CAP faculty advisor as well as a general psychiatry advisor to the psychiatry interest group. Sponsor local and regional interest group events that are CAP-related. These may be interdisciplinary cooperative efforts, such as with pediatrics and family medicine, discussing child PTSD or ADHD.
V. Wellness Corner
A new "Wellness Corner" is being created, so that we can share resources and ideas about improving wellness and wellbeing in undergraduate and graduate education, including faculty development
If you have technical difficulties opening any of the resources, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
