Learning Objectives
At the end of this Grand Rounds lecture, attendees will be able to:

  1. Review the history of psychiatry in the U.S. and understand how structural racism has created today’s mental health disparities and its impact on mental health care delivery systems.
  2. Acknowledge and be sensitive to the needs of the increasingly diverse workforce and be trained to assist with the challenging personal and professional issues that arise in psychiatric service delivery systems.
  3. Educate psychiatric education leaders about how training programs can incorporate specific, culturally relevant, appropriate and responsive practices into the training environment throughout the entire training experience (medical school, residency/fellowship, supervision and lifelong learning experiences).

The educational objective for Psychiatry Grand Rounds is to provide mental health professionals with updates on psychiatric topics with the goals of increasing knowledge, competence, and patient care. Psychiatry Grand Rounds are held on Wednesdays (September-May) from 12 to 1 p.m. Be sure to log into your CME account and complete the evaluation to receive credit.
