AADPRT encourages its members to share curricula they've developed for the benefit of our academic psychiatry community. There are several advantages to disseminating your course. A well-designed, peer-reviewed curriculum is a scholarly product that will directly assist with academic promotion for most institutions. Having a curriculum on the AADPRT website will help in establishing your program as a content expert. Sharing the content allows others to benefit from your contribution and also evaluate the content and make suggestions to further strengthen the material.
The Curriculum Committee serves as a source of peer review for member-submitted curricula with the aim of disseminating high quality and innovative teaching resources for psychiatry residency programs and recognition of the scholarly contribution of authors to the education literature. The curriculum committee also facilitates members’ access to broad sources of curricular materials.
Curricula that has been peer-reviewed and adopted as Model Curricula are available to members in the Virtual Training Office (VTO) located on their dashboard. Search by entering words in the search field or browse the Model Curricula Folder located in the Virtual Classroom folder. Non-members may submit Model Curricula for consideration by asking an AADPRT member to submit on their behalf.
