Little information is currently available about how residents perceive the recently developed state-university collaboration programs in psychiatry. To determine the opinions of residents participating in the collaboration program in Kentucky, the authors administered a questionnaire to 18 residents who had completed at least one rotation at Eastern State Hospital in Lexington. The questionnaire asked the residents to respond to statements about the clinical, organizational, and educational aspects of the experience. Most respondents rated the experience as favorable, and 78 percent indicated interest in state employment. in addition, the state hospital was noted as one of residents' three future career choices.
