Undergraduate Medical Education
Medical student education is at the core of our department's mission.
We provide quality learning opportunities in behavioral sciences, neurosciences and psychiatry sub-specialties.

Our department sponsors coursework in behavioral sciences for second-year students. The Psychiatry Clerkship for third-year medical students is a core component of medical education and provides an introduction to clinical care in the neurosciences. For fourth-year students, our department offers various elective courses in psychiatry sub-specialties and psychiatric research.
