WRITE students complete half of the Psychiatry Clerkship in an inpatient setting. During that three week period you are very busy! You need to complete the requirements below during your 3 week inpatient block with the exception of completing one of the psychiatry write ups, attending an AA meeting and giving your oral presentation on a topic related to psychiatry which you can complete at your WRITE site.
You do have the flexibility of taking the clerkship exam at the end of the 3 week inpatient block or later including while you are at your WRITE site. So you are able to make an informed decision we have looked back to see how WRITE students perform on the exam when taken at the end of the 3 week inpatient experience versus later. The scores were exactly the same for students taking the exam at the end of the rotation, in the 3 week block immediately after the rotation and months later at their WRITE site so we will let you decide when you would like to take the exam. Some students want to get the exam over and others feel after only 3 weeks they are not ready. You will need to let Gayle Schneider know when you would like to take the exam.
