The Psychiatry Clerkship is integrated within the 8-week, full-time Psychiatry and Neurology Clerkship to enhance students’ understanding of the interplay between brain and behavior, and to introduce current clinical applications of modern neuroscience. The goal of the psychiatric portion of this clerkship is to provide students with the psychiatric knowledge essential for the general practice of medicine.
The Psychiatry Clerkship provides opportunities to develop the understanding and skills needed to work with patients of all kinds. We hope to stimulate curiosity about the human mind, and the desire to practice medicine with a comprehensive approach to health and disease. We welcome you to this course and hopes it will fulfill your needs and expectations.
