The Psychiatric Residency and Professional Socialization

Abstract

A residency training program in psychiatry was studied in terms of (1) the place of the socializing institution in a wider professional community, and (2) how socialization occurred. It was found that ties to a specific professional community outside of the institution set the professional values to which candidates were exposed, and also guided the selection of appropriate candidates. Finally, a series of "mechanisms of socialization" were identified which were embedded in the course of experiences through which the candidate passed.
