Catalog Description: The goal of the Psychiatry Clerkship is to prepare medical students to recognize, diagnose, and care for patients with psychiatric disorders encountered in most medical practices. Students will be assigned to work with interdisciplinary teams which will aid the student in meeting course objectives. Students will be assigned patients and will follow in-hospital. They will attend teaching rounds and a variety of teaching conferences. Each student will be required to view a series of lecture recordings and complete a clinical case report at their individual teaching sites. Case reports include the course and clinical outcome, in addition to a literature review of the crucial issues related to the case.
