Objectives: Following the approval of the standards for the four-year psychiatry residency curriculum in Iran, training in community psychiatry is now considered as an obligatory 3-month course. Gathering information about the community psychiatry residency programs in other countries could help us in planning and development of an Iranian program. The aim of the current study was to review the programs in different countries. Method: A comprehensive search was performed in various databases using specific keywords such as “residency”, “community”, and “psychiatry”. Moreover, the published training programs of the universities in different countries were obtained. Results and Conclusion: Training varies considerably across different university departments both in the content and methods of the training and duration of the courses. This variation may be due to different needs and/or available community settings. However, some common features emerge for example, didactic teachings are integrated in most programs, residents actively participate in delivering community-based services (such as those in community mental health centers and outreach services), and learning how to work in team-based services is a main objective.
