The Psychiatry Clerkship is a four-week clinical rotation that gives medical students the opportunity to see a broad range of psychiatric illness. Students develop an ability to elicit symptoms and to formulate diagnoses and basic treatment plans. This clerkship is offered at all nine IU School of Medicine campuses in a diverse range of clinical settings, including acute inpatient settings, outpatient clinics, and emergency services.
Upon completion of the Psychiatry Clerkship, medical students are able to complete the following tasks. These training objectives align with the IU School of Medicine MD Curriculum Competencies and Institutional Learning Objectives. This alignment enables faculty and students to understand how current student learning prepares them for the next stage in training and for their ongoing practice and maintenance of certification.
