There is little to be added in the way of specifics to James Deming's review of the necessary ingredients for an ideal Residency Training Program (1). He not only reviews the specific issues which must be addressed regarding the "nuts and bolts" of training, but also emphasizes the need for phase specificity of both clinical and didactic experiences and the need to view residency training from a developmental perspective. Rather than comment specifically on the points Deming raises, I would like to address other ingredients in residency training which are to be valued in the ideal program.
