Psychiatry : The psychiatry clerkship is designed to provide students with the core knowledge and skills required to understand and assist patients and families with either psychiatric illness, or overwhelming emotional distress. It also provides students with an understanding of the complex interplay between psychiatric and non-psychiatric illness, and the need to be aware of medical illness in patients presenting with psychiatric symptoms, and vice versa. Students at all training sites will receive the equivalent of 8-weeks of training in psychiatry, where they will be exposed to the principles and practice of child and adult psychiatry through their work in a variety of clinical settings, in addition to participating in core learning sessions and independent learning activities. The complementary roles of the family physician and the psychiatrist in the care of patients with mental illness will be highlighted.
