3rd Year Selectives
|Although less than 5% of medical students nationwide become psychiatrists, psychiatric illnesses are seen in almost all disciplines of medicine, and it is important for students to develop skills for diagnosing, treating, and referring patients who have psychiatric illnesses.|
|In their 3rd-year, students may elect to take one or two 3-week selectives in Psychiatry. View the detailed list of available psychiatry selectives|
3rd year selectives are graded Pass/Fail based upon the attending supervisor's evaluation of the student's clinical performance. There is no written exam.
