Clerkship - Psychiatric Medicine
University of Virginia
The student will interact with and care for patients with a variety of emotional and psychiatric problems associated with acute and chronic illnesses. During the clerkship, the student will become a front-line member of the health team. Experiences will include outpatient clinics, inpatient units, consult service, and emergency room, as well as other specialty focuses depending on the location of the clerkship.
Regular scheduled didactics will focus on the clinical skills in psychiatric health care.
Evaluation of students varies from location, but clinical evaluation by residents and attendings comprise the majority of the grade at each site. Students will be informed of exact details when assigned a psychiatry rotation site.
