Are there current efforts to add additional training in general medical care into psychiatric training programs?

For many psychiatrists, medical training largely occurs as a part of clinical rotations during medical school and a year of internship. Professional societies in the US and Canada have position statements supporting enhanced training in general medical problems, and some individual programs are beginning to build this training more formally into their curricula. In many health systems, coordinated approaches to care can ensure that individuals with serious mental illness are able to access integrated mental health and medical care.
