PSY 45010 - Private Practice with Focus on Mood Disorders


Cr Hrs: 3, 6
Session Length: 2 and 4 weeks

This is a face to face clinical rotation receiving 3 or 6 credit hours. The student should function with increased autonomy in patient care and must demonstrate competency in several of the Entrustable Professional Activities required for graduation. The objectives for this course are to familiarize students with diagnosis and treatment of psychiatric adult patients in hospital, day hospital, and outpatient settings. The students will see around 15-20 patients per day, but will focus in-depth on 3-4 per week throughout their stay. Students will be part of a treatment team. They will not write in the chart, but will participate with the attending in formulating the treatment plan and in the structure of the documentation in each patient’s chart. There is full-time supervision by the course coordinator or his associates. In addition to patient care, the students will attend structured activities such as, Bipolar Spectrum lectures, transformative skills courses, suicide prevention courses, trauma resolution groups, Bipolar Spectrum multi-family groups, and addiction groups.
