Efforts have been made to develop a core curriculum for cultural sensitivity training for psychiatry residents. There is a lack of literature reporting effectiveness of various teaching modalities for such training. The authors report their experience with a 4-hour pilot workshop to teach psychiatry residents ethnic and cultural issues in patient care. Pretest and posttest questionnaires were designed to measure residents' knowledge of cultural issues. There was statistically significant improvement in performance on questionnaires after the workshop (F=30.6; P<0.001). Further studies are necessary to examine teaching modalities in residency education.
