Course Overview

The psychiatry clerkship is designed to provide students with basic skills in diagnosis and treatment applicable to patients across all specialties, particularly those in primary care practices. There are a variety of local and regional sites in which the students are assigned for their clinical experience. In addition, the approach to patient care in a chemical dependency program is observed by all students for two days during each block. Each student will also have an outpatient psychiatric experience. Attendance is expected at the weekly didactics and grand rounds which are scheduled on Fridays.
