Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences
4th Year Electives
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.
The 4th year electives build upon skills first introduced in the 3rd-year psychiatry clerkship and provide students the opportunity to work with psychiatric patients in various settings.
