Psychiatric Care Block

4-Week Clinical Experience

Most physicians will practice psychiatry, no matter their specialty. Therefore, the aim of the Department of Psychiatry is to prepare students to be able to evaluate, refer or initiate treatment for common psychiatric problems. The Psychiatric Care Clerkship builds on what students have learned - and learned how to do – during the psychiatry sequence in years one and two. Students will continue to practice the brief psychiatric interview and psychiatric screens outlined in the CU ASSESSMENT OF COMMON PSYCHIATRIC PROBLEMS whether on inpatient or outpatient units or working with children, adolescents or adults.
