Special advice from the Clerkship Director: Psychiatry is a dynamic clerkship where medical students will have a variety of experiences. Be proactive in evaluating patients. Students should be open-minded, attend case conferences and mental health court. Example: Time Off Requests (for any reason) must be submitted at least 2 weeks before starting your Clerkship.
