Psychiatric Clerkship for Medical Students

Welcome to our Psychiatric Clerkship for Medical Students. This course aims to provide medical students with essential resources and knowledge to help develop foundational skills and competencies related to their psychiatry training. The course is organized into modules and lessons which cover a range of psychiatric disorders as outlined in the DSM-5, including but not limited to sleeping disorders, sexual disorders, substance use disorders, eating disorders, and adjustment disorders. The modules focus on identifying and screening for specific symptoms and proposing feasible treatment and management strategies. In addition, a COVID-19 module explores the impact of the pandemic on mental health conditions. By engaging in this course, you will be able to develop skills specific to psychiatry, such as history-taking, medical interviewing, and clinical reasoning, through our interactive learning components.
