Psychiatric residents increasing.

The number of psychiatric residents is increasing modestly, according to a resident census conducted by the American Psychiatric Association. As of Aug. 30, the total number of psychiatric residents had increased 1.6% over the previous year. U.S. medical graduates increased 4%, and women residents were up 5.5%, the census showed. Psychosomatic medicine, a new psychiatric subspecialty, had 60% female fellows. The top three most popular subspecialties were child and adolescent psychiatry, addiction psychiatry, and forensic psychiatry; all subspecialties had increasing numbers of fellows except for geriatric psychiatry. Geographically, the highest concentration of residents was in New York state, followed by California.
