ECT Observation


Students must observe at least one ECT treatment during their six week clerkship. Students at CMC will arrange this with Dr. Mundle.  Students at UNC and CRH will participate in observing ECT at UNC Hospitals.


For students at UNC and CRH, a sign-up form will be available on orientation day. Please sign up for a day when you are on a UNC psychiatry site and not on call.

For ECT at UNC Hospitals, students should report to the PACU area of outpatient surgery on 2nd floor Anderson by 9:30 AM. Generally, this observation is around 1 hour. If you have questions regarding the ECT observation, please contact the secretary for the ECT Service, Adrienne Douglas, at 6-5477 or 6-4283.


Directions to the PACU / ECT area:

Walking toward MacNider from Neurosciences while in the Memorial building,  enter the PCS B Waiting Room on the left side of the hall.  Go to the back of the room; you'll see a door on the left which leads to procedures.  Once back, you should find a nursing station that is most helpful in directing students toward the procedure room.  If you have any difficulty, you can call the ECT Service secretary (Adrienne Douglas, 6-5477 or 6-4283).
