Psychiatry and Medicine

JAMA. 2003;289(23):3176-3177. doi:10.1001/jama.289.23.3176

In their introduction to the four books in the 2002 Review of Psychiatry Series, John Oldham and Michelle Riba note doctors' increased awareness of the role stress has in precipitating frank illness in those who are (genetically) vulnerable. They note that thousands of children lost one or both parents in the World Trade Center terrorist attacks in 2001, bringing a sad topical note to the book. Adding, "Increasingly, medicine's front door is the hospital emergency service," they remark that today's psychiatrist needs to have, more than ever, a far-reaching knowledge of "cutting edge" medicine to intervene in a useful manner.
