Comments on the article, "Are psychiatrists real doctors? A survey of the medical experience and training of psychiatric trainees in the west of Scotland," by Dr Robinson (see record 2005-01493-009). The survey of psychiatric trainees in Scotland by Dr Robinson showed that a significant amount of physical healthcare is being provided by psychiatric trainees. The role of the trainee is to identify and manage problems for which they often may have received no formal training. I have experience and training in primary care which I have found invaluable in dealing with my patients' physical health problems. It may be of value to consider the training needs of psychiatric trainees with regards to management of physical health problems. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2016 APA, all rights reserved)
