PSYC 300 - Psychiatry


Marc Colon, M.D., Clerkship Director

6.00 credit hours

This course includes clinical training in psychiatry. Students participate in the departments’ inpatient wards and outpatient clinics, grand rounds, and didactic sessions. In addition to core knowledge in this specialty, students gain an understanding of the relationship between all disciplines as they are exposed to the evaluation and management of patients on consultative services. Departmental didactic seminars and case conferences involving various aspects of psychiatric pathology, interviewing and examination skills, and therapeutic techniques are offered. Both normal and pathological clinical experiences are gained in the department’s clinical settings under the supervision of attending physicians and residents. The primary goal is to equip the student with knowledge and experience that will be beneficial in the understanding of patients regardless of his or her medical specialty interest. The clinical experience in the third year is on the following services: psychiatry inpatient, psychiatry emergency, psychiatry consultation /liaison, and psychiatric outpatient clinics.
