Medical Student Education


Since our founding in 1923, our department has always been dedicated to the education of our medical students. We recognize that, no matter what specialty you ultimately enter, most of you will practice psychiatry one way or another. Our core psychiatry curriculum will provide you with the clinical understanding and tools for this reality. Our electives will give you the opportunity to hone your psychiatry skills and explore a variety of research and clinical issues.  Psychiatry grows each year in the effective treatments that it offers patients, while it retains its essential interest in the individuality of their lives.  You will become part of both the growth and the tradition of education in our field. We look forward to working with you.
