Students are expected to participate from 8:30 am until 5:00 pm Monday through Friday. There is no on-call expectation.

Acting Internship in Psychiatry: #PSYY 423

The student will function as an intern under the direct supervision of the unit attending. The student will follow at least four patients and will function as the team leader for those patients including making rounds, discussing the patient with their attending and seeing the patient together, leading discussions at team meetings, attending family meetings, proposing medication interventions, and working with the discharge planner to develop a discharge plan. Emergency evaluation skills will be enhanced by four call experiences in the evening in the emergency department and during the day if inpatient duties are completed. The student will work on two weekend days during the rotation (either two Saturdays or one Saturday-Sunday weekend).

Schedule is based on preceptor availability.
