To develop an appreciation and increased understanding of psychopathology, psycho-pharmacology and somatic treatments. 3. To assume the role of primary caregiver for psychiatric patients while under direct supervision|
|Students will participate in the role of senior medical student on the inpatient psychiatry treatment team. Independent responsibilities approaching the level of intern/resident will be proportional to a studentís interest, drive and abilities. Students will assess their patients daily and have full input on the treatment team as a primary caregiver.|
|Description of course activities|
|Senior students receive individualized clinical inpatient experiences under supervision as part of a multidisciplinary treatment team that includes attending and resident(s) psychiatrists and 3rd year medical students. Senior students will be mentored to their strengths and coached on areas where they feel they need assistance for career and professional development. That students master concepts such as bio-psycho-social formulation and treatment planning will prove them superior clinicians whether they become a psychiatrist or not. Those senior medical students who want a broader view of psychiatry can be accommodated on a case-by-case basis. As senior students are expected to be more autonomous than 3rd year students, they will have time to focus on specialized topics (e.g. ECT, child, or consultation-liaison psychiatry) if desired. Please contact the course coordinator for more information.|
