Abstract OBJECTIVE: There is a developing literature on the use of movies for educating psychiatric residents. This may be the first report of the use of film as the basis of a psychiatric resident acculturation course. METHOD: The author describes an American culture course for PGY-1 psychiatric residents and presents satisfaction and construct validity data. RESULTS: Resident satisfaction was high. Three staff members scored higher than international medical graduates (IMG) residents on a precourse exam. CONCLUSION: Feature films can be used as the basis for an enjoyable acculturation course.
