The chapter summarizes three components of the University of California, Davis (UC Davis) forensic psychiatry training program designed to provide forensic psychiatry fellows with the skills to become leaders in the field. The UC Davis program offers extensive didactic and practical training to the forensic psychiatry fellows on how to effectively present an exciting and interactive forensic lecture and master their skills as a forensic educator and expert witness. The UC Davis program also emphasizes mastery of forensic psychiatric evaluations through detailed training in forensic ethics, forensic report writing, and attorney consultation. Finally, the UC Davis program provides the resident with in-depth education on the role of structured forensic assessment instruments, and psychological testing. The fellow is trained on how to administer and interpret selected assessments relevant in forensic evaluations and for research purposes.
