Although medical students receive no formal training in pediatric psychosomatic medicine, most residents in psychiatry receive a 6-month course in consultation-liaison psychiatry that focuses on adult and geriatric patients. Training in adult psychosomatic medicine includes some general requirements, such as the assessment and management of delirium, suicide assessment, altered mental status, refusal of medical treatment, and acute grief reactions. However, there are no formal training requirements specific to children. Although residents can take a final written examination in consultation-liaison psychiatry, there is no board certification. Since the 1980s, a 2-year training course has been available for board certification in general child and adolescent psychiatry.
