Psychiatry in Phase 1

Students will be exposed to psychiatry primarily in Block 6: Brain and Behavior.

Block 6: Brain & Behavior (10 weeks; 8 credits) follows the summer break between the M1 and M2 academic years.  Much of the peripheral nervous system would have been explored during previous blocks; here the emphasis is on the central nervous system, the special senses, and many aspects of normal and abnormal human development, psychology, and psychiatric disorders.
