This article gives a comprehensive review of the history of cultural education, empirical findings that speak to its need, and the challenges that may be faced in the conception and implementation of a cultural competency curriculum. The American Academy of Child and Adolescent Pscyhiatry's model curriculum is presented to help child and adolescent residency programs design one that is specific to their resources and needs.
