The Department of Psychiatry provides educational programs that include clinical training and research for medical students, psychiatry residents, and psychiatry fellows.

During the first and second years, the Department of Psychiatry directs the teaching of the behavioral sciences courses. In these interdisciplinary courses, lectures and demonstrations cover a broad range of human behavioral determinants—including the biology, psychology, sociology, and psychopathology of behavior. It also deals with a holistic concept of behavior and its spiritual components.

The third-year, six-week psychiatry clerkship includes five weeks divided between two psychiatry treatment sites and one week at an addiction treatment site. These clerkship experiences offer broad and varied training in the treatment of psychiatric problems of adults and children. Students also participate in an interactive, case-based seminar series.

Fourth-year medical students have the opportunity to take electives with psychiatry faculty members in child and adult settings, as well as an intensive reading/discussion course in religion and psychiatry.
