Sophomore Year ICM II
Introduction to Clinical Medicine II
This course, a continuation of ICM I, is intended to help the student further the process of developing their clinical skills toward the goal of making a successful transition to the "clinical years" of medical school and, ultimately, to clinical practice. The Department of Psychiatry participates in this course in the form of lectures/patient interviews focusing on the title of our course: "Mental Status Examination: Diagnosis of Psychopathology." We give 13 one-hour lectures, half of which are followed by a patient interview depicting the diagnosis discussed in lecture (i.e. schizophrenia).
