Leading Educators Share Secrets At Annual Meeting Sessions -- Muskin 36 (6): 18 -- Psychiatric News, 16 Mar 2001 [cached]
Psychiatrists Donald Fidler, M.D., Ruth Levine, M.D., and Ronald Rieder, M.D., are the "master teachers" selected for the Master Educator Clinical Consultation (MECC) series at APA's 2001 annual meeting in New Orleans.
Ronald O. Rieder, M.D., is director of residency education and vice chair for education in the department of psychiatry of Columbia University.He was nominated by the American Association of Directors of Psychiatric Residency Training.Rieder spent eight years in the Intramural Research Program of the National Institute of Mental Health conducting research on schizophrenia.He came to Columbia in 1979 to direct the residency program.In 1998 Rieder received the department of psychiatry's Medical Student Teaching Award for his lectures on schizophrenia.He also oversees postresidency fellowship training at Columbia and is responsible for the administration of two postresidency NIMH-supported research training programs.
Rieder will speak on Wednesday, May 9, at 11 a.m. on "Teaching Psychopathology to Medical Students."He will present segments of the two lectures on schizophrenia he gives to first-year medical students in a course on psychiatric disorders.The first lecture introduces students to the phenomenology of the illness, and the second describes research data and theories of etiology and pathogenesis, illustrating the illness with a video of a patient with whom he has worked.He will also compare letters the patient wrote while sane with those written while psychotic.The lecture enables students to appreciate this illness from the inside,the fear, confusion, misperceptions, anxiety, and sadness.The second lecture he will demonstrate focuses on the "myth of mental illness" proposals of Thomas Szasz, M.D., and relevant biological data such as brain-imaging findings.Rieder will discuss these and other methods of getting students who have not yet had direct clinical experiences and are skeptical of the concept of psychiatric illness excited about psychiatry and interested in learning more about psychiatric illness.
Psychiatry Residents in Treatment Prefer Psychotherapy to Medication -- Lehmann 39 (24): 17 -- Psychiatric News, 17 Dec 2004 [cached]
"Residents are often encouraged by training directors and faculty who teach psychodynamic psychotherapy to enter individual psychotherapy for the educational value," said Ronald Rieder, M.D., a clinical professor of psychiatry and vice chair for education at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York.
Yet the majority of psychiatry residents (60 percent) who completed a 51-item questionnaire in 2002 and said they had sought psychiatric treatment did so for personal reasons compared with 22 percent who said they entered psychotherapy for the educational value and 18 percent who did so for both reasons, Rieder said last month at the New York Academy of Medicine (NYAM) Section on Psychiatry 2004 Stuart Asch Memorial Lecture.
The topic of the session was residents' mental health examined from a multicultural perspective (see article above).Rieder is also the residency training director at Columbia and the New York State Psychiatric Institute.
Residents face numerous stresses including long hours of work for low pay, increased patient responsibilities with less supervision, and fatigue, said Rieder, who described common residency stresses and responses at the NYAM program.
"Residents, especially in the first year, often feel overwhelmed, anxious, tired, apathetic, guilty when patients die, and angry at being put in this situation," said Rieder."In addition, their support network is disrupted because residents barely have time for their spouses or significant others."
About two-thirds of the residents in treatment were in individual psychotherapy only, while 17 percent were in therapy and taking a psychiatric medication, and less than 1 percent were on medication only, according to Rieder.The medications that were most commonly prescribed for these residents were antidepressants, sleeping aids, and antianxiety drugs.
Psychiatry residents who completed the questionnaire believe that significantly more stigma is associated with medication use than psychotherapy, both in their training program and U.S. psychiatry as a whole, Rieder said.
He urged psychiatry faculty and training program directors to "do a better job of recognizing that residents may have serious mental illnesses such as major depression and to encourage the use of medication and psychotherapy."
