Introduction: In the period 1993-1999, the World Psychiatric Association developed, in collaboration with the World Federation for Medical Education, guidelines concerning the teaching of psychiatry to undergraduate students of medicine. Developments in the neurosciences, psychopharmacology, epidemiology, psychotherapies, and cultural studies are now leading to the need to re-examine the identity and role of psychiatrists and to develop a basic international framework for postgraduate training in psychiatry.
The process of globalization in psychiatry is accompanied by conflicting pressures in the developing world (resources shortage) and in the developed world (managed care). It is essential that a core international curriculum for postgraduate training be rooted on a biopsychosocial framework as well as on a culturally-informed understanding of clinical and educational needs.
