In an attempt to evaluate the current state of the training residents receive in psychiatric epidemiology in Psychiatry Residency programs, the Canadian Academy of Psychiatric Epidemiology sent a questionnaire to the 16 Canadian Residency Program Directors. Thirteen of the 16 directors (82%) responded. Program directors identified a number of the common components to the training, although there was wide variation in the time allocated and the availability of resources. The biggest single obstacle to the teaching was a perceived lack of interest on the part of the residents.
