Keeping pace with advances in neurosciences is, in part, predicated upon an adequate knowledge of neurology obtained during the psychiatrist's residency training. Results from a questionnaire assessing resident abiliities in neurology and psychiatry were compared with Psychiatry Resident In-Training Examination (PRITE) scores. Self-confidence for treating neurological disorders declined with the progression of training; however, neurology PRITE scores improved significantly. Psychiatric PRITE scores and psychiatric self-confidence also improved over time. These findings have implications for current residency training criteria and education.
