Both have been leaders of the Fellowship Education Subcommittee. But they’ll be putting aside their collective Academy leadership to go head-to-head in the Great Debate today at 11:15 in Salon East, the final day of CLP 2022.

Dr. Lee contends: Fast-tracking will be a beneficial option for residents interested in C-L Psychiatry. Dr. Rosenthal disagrees: Fast-tracking might be beneficial to attract fellowship candidates, but at what cost?

Dr. Rosenthal asserts: C-L Psychiatry is a wonderful and expanding field! There are many opportunities to address current challenges and to support our Fellows and programs. Dr. Lee disagrees: Fast-tracking needs to be considered as part of the evolution of the education and field of C-L Psychiatry in the 21st century.
