May 07, 2018

Fifty Yale Department of Psychiatry residents, fellows, and faculty contributed to a new book that presents key studies that have shaped the practice of psychiatry.

50 Studies Every Psychiatrist Should Know was edited by Ish P. Bhalla, MD, a forensic psychiatry fellow at Yale School of Medicine and former Yale Department of Psychiatry resident; Rajesh R. Tampi, MBBS, DFAPA, MS, Associate Clinical Professor of Psychiatry; and Vinod Srihari, MD, Associate Professor of Psychiatry.

Studies featured in the book were selected using a rigorous method. They cover topics including psychotic disorders, depressive disorders, women’s mental health, child and adolescent disorders, and epidemiological studies.

For each study, a concise summary is presented with an emphasis on the results and limitations of the study, and its implications for practice. An illustrative clinical case concludes each review, followed by brief information on other relevant studies.

The editors say the book is a must-read for health care professionals and anyone who wants to learn more about the data behind clinical practice.
