This is a four week course that gives students an individualized
clinical experience under the supervision of an attending psychiatrist.
Based on a student's interests he/she will be matched with a preceptor.
Our goal is to enhance the understanding of the role of psychiatrists
including the recognition and management of psychiatric problems. We
hope also to enhance the understanding of doctor-patient relationships
and improve the students interviewing skills allowing them to integrate
psychosocial factors in treating patients. This experience is very
similar to what the student will be doing during their third year, they
will be part of an inpatient ward team or may work with an attending in
an outpatient clinic. They will meet daily with faculty to discuss
