    Credentialing criteria for inpatient psychiatry


    I am a CMO of an acute care general hospitral with a 30 bed, locked, high acquity med-psych unit. Our bylaws require all physicians to have practiced in an acute care general hospital for two of the previous four years. Is this an unreasonable requirement for a psychiatrist? Some argue it is maiking it impossible for us to find psychiatrists who meet the credentialing criteria but our MEC will not budge.
