Psychiatry 3rd Year Clerkship

Program Description

The goal of our program is to provide an overview of Psychiatry including the recognition and management of psychiatric problems. In addition we hope to enhance understanding of the doctor-patient relationship and improve your interviewing skills, allowing you to integrate psychosocial factors in treating patients. Students will receive individualized clinical experience under the supervision of an attending psychiatrist. We hope to help students to develop a greater understanding of the role of psychiatrists and to train those students in critical aspects of psychiatric diagnosis and treatment.
