Pediatric psychopharmacology is taught at the Duke University Hospital Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Residency Training Program within the context of an evidence-based medicine model. The basic goal of the course is to develop competence in the psychopharmacologic management of psychiatric problems of children and adolescents as part of a biopsychosocial/developmental model of care. Associated with this over-arching goal is the demonstration of specific attitudes, knowledge, and skills. This article discusses the educational model with examples and each of these goals in depth.
