Clinical Psychiatry will focus on the diagnosis and treatment of patients with psychiatric conditions within the broader context of primary care medicine. The course will emphasize the connection between the acquisition of basic clinical science information and its application in direct patient care. The most current Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychiatric Association will be used to introduce the student to the classification of psychiatric disorders and the multi-axial approach to the assessment of the patient. Pharmacological interventions focus on an understanding of the neurobiological underpinnings of psychiatric conditions.
