Course Requirements

    1. Medical Student Study Session (exams, current topics, week review):

      Wednesdays 1:30-3:30 PM Anschutz Medical Center, Bldg. 500, level 2 in the Psychiatry Medical Student Conference Room # E2329.

    2. Pediatric/Child Psychiatry (elective)

      Students who are interested in seeing children or adolescents during their rotation – and we think this is important for any who are planning to treat families or kids – please review the options below. Students should be sure to discuss which of the two clinic times would work best for them to join with their attending.

      The clinic is located on the 2nd floor west wing of Building 500. Each student should let the west front desk staff know that they are attending the clinic and wait to be directed to the “Attending” Area.

      Tuesday is a general clinic with an emphasis on medication management. On Tuesday, the PGY III residents in general psychiatry have child clinic form 2:00 – 6:00 PM. Dr. Phil Weintraub and Dr. Debbie Carter are faculty supervisors.

      Thursday and Friday clinics are a mix of very young child clinic, “refugee/immigrant” clinic, medication management and ongoing psychotherapy. On Thursday the clinic is held 1:00-6:00pm and on Friday, clinic is held from 8:30 AM to 12:00 PM. The child and adolescent Psychiatry chiefs, Drs. Anthony Cordaro and Scott McKay , are present in the Friday clinic. Drs. Cook, Savin, Frankel and Carter are faculty supervisors.

      Students are to email Drs. Cordaro and McKay if they plan on attending on Tuesdays and/or Fridays. Email Dr. Kelsay if attending Thursday. They are also requested to copy
