Seminars are intended to be interactive, focusing on the major psychiatric issues salient to becoming a competent physician, regardless of specialty choice. All students are required to participate in a core seminar series which is held 12-1 PM Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays in 238 MacNider. UNC students attend seminar in person. CRH, WakeBrook and CMC students attend the seminars via teleconference; when CRH students are at UNC for outpatient clinics they will attend seminars along with UNC students in 238 MacNider. There are also 4 Team-Based Learning (TBL) sessions that occur during Orientation Day, the Dayback, and two Tuesdays at noon during the clerkship. Preparation is expected, as there are graded quizzes for each TBL. CRH students will join the UNC students in Chapel Hill for the Tuesday TBL's; CMC and UNC-WakeBrook will videoconference in.
A primary goal of the Psychiatry Clerkship is to help students develop clinical interviewing skills, clinical reasoning, and oral presentation skills. Each clerkship site has a program to ensure that students develop these critical skills. Sessions are designed to provide formative feedback only, and to prepare students for the graded Oral Exam (observed interview, mental status exam and oral presentation) at the end of the rotation.

Each student will submit a patient write-up, including history, pertinent physical exam, discussion of the differential diagnosis and treatment plan. Details and a rubric for this assignment can be found here.
