Rapid changes in health care financing and delivery systems will adversely affect child psychiatry training. Reductions in teaching hospitals' patient revenues and in federal support for graduate medical education have made the development of string academic and research programs more difficult. Training programs must search for innovative ways to fund clinical training if they are to survive and grow. The authors review major sources for funding, such as state governments, future employers of trainees, endowments, faculty practice plans, and residents paying for training, and discuss opportunities for increasing their contributions.
