PSY 30000 - Core Clerkship in Psychiatry (Memphis)


Cr Hrs: 6
Session Length: 4 weeks

This is a face to face clinical rotation receiving 6 credit hours. Core Clerkship in Psychiatry is a four-week requirement for all medical students. Students are assigned to a general inpatient service, or to a Consultation- Liaison Psychiatry Service, as their home base. Lectures, readings, case conferences, and mandatory exposure to Child Psychiatry and education in Electroconvulsive Therapy (live or on-line) round out the experience. The student is expected to gain a basic knowledge of psychiatric diagnosis, applied psychopharmacology, and non-pharmacologic treatment options. Emphasis is on information useful to students regardless of their future specialty choice. This clerkship is offered in Memphis year-round, and in Knoxville and Chattanooga during certain blocks.
