Clerkship in Psychiatry - Class of 2014

Syllabus - CE 9185

  1. General Description
    1. The Clerkship in Psychiatry is a course (CE 9185) in the undergraduate medical curriculum that culminates in the D.O. degree.  As part of the core clerkship program, this rotation is offered during the third year of study.  It is directed by the Department of Behavioral Sciences.  Successful completion of this course is required for graduation.
    2. This rotation is a one-calendar-month (or four-week for Rural Medicine Track students) experience in which the student, under supervision, may extend his/her knowledge of clinical psychiatry and develop psychiatric skills.  Students advance their knowledge base in pursuit of answers to questions that arise during patient care and through assigned reading.  Skill development occurs as students apply this knowledge and that learned earlier in didactic pre-clinical course work to clinical problems encountered in clerkship activities.
    3. The majority of the course is conducted in clinical sites including JCAHO-certified hospitals or College-affiliated psychiatric facilities.
    4. The course is taught by OSU-COM clinical faculty.  The Course Coordinator (see section 15, below) is responsible for the overall organization and conduct of the course.  A Preceptor (see section 14, below) at each training site is responsible for the organization of that site’s training activities and often conducts direct supervision of the students activities.  AnAttending Physician(s) at each site (see section 14, below) may conduct direct supervision of the student’s activities.  Attending physicians may be Residents in Psychiatry.  The roles of Preceptor and Attending Physician may be carried out by the same or by different individuals who may be referred to as Site Faculty.  All clinical activities of each student will be supervised by such physicians who will be in attendance for training purposes while the student is in the facility.
    5. This syllabus is effective for the class of 2013.  That is, it applies to those third-year students who take this Clerkship during the 2011-2012 academic year.
  2. Prerequisites
    The first four semesters of the required OSU-COM curriculum must be successfully completed prior to starting clerkship rotations.  This coursework contains exposure to basic behavioral science and psychiatric knowledge and skills.
  3. Purpose
    The purpose of this clerkship is to develop students’ knowledge base and clinical skills in psychiatry to the level expected of medical school graduates. Further information about these expectations may be obtained from “Clinical Learning Objectives Guide for Psychiatry Education of Medical Students” published by the Association of Directors of Medical Student Education in Psychiatry [ADMSEP] (available at www.admsep.org).
  4. Course Objectives
    Certain knowledge and skills are fundamental to the diagnosis and management of mental health problems.  Development of this core knowledge and these skills in clinical psychiatry is emphasized in this clerkship.
    1. Clinical psychiatry is based on a distinctive fund of information.  Development of a knowledge base that will enable primary care physicians to recognize and prescribe first-line treatment for patients with common psychiatric disorders is an integral part of this clerkship.  The Knowledge Development Modules are designed to facilitate the accumulation of this information through requiring literature review and discussion of the modules with one’s Site Faculty.
    2. Certain clinical psychiatric skills are fundamental to the diagnosis and management of mental health problems.  Development of these skills is emphasized in this clerkship.  This rotation is oriented toward helping the student increase his/her readiness to perform the following basic skills:
      1. Conducting diagnostic interviews, including activities such as:
        1. Responding to patients’ concerns in an empathic manner,
        2. Obtaining relevant psychosocial and medical histories, and
        3. Performing a Mental Status Exam.
      2. Formulating and clarifying diagnostic findings and treatment recommendations  involving, for example:
        1. Summarizing medical and psychosocial histories,
        2. Describing physical exam and lab results
        3. Organizing interview data and treatment recommendations into comprehensive, integrated, cogent case presentations, and
        4. Explaining findings to the patient, family, and/or other health care professionals.
      3. Assisting the Attending Physician by:
        1. Researching medical tests and diagnostic procedures,
        2. Searching for information about medications and other somatic treatments
        3. Conducting diagnostic and/or treatment interviews, as directed by the attending physician.
        4. Documenting evaluation and treatment procedures, involving duties such as recording results of diagnostic interviews, lab studies, and/or treatment plans in a timely way according to the medical records protocols of the rotation site.
  5. Curriculum The instructional program consists of the following:
    1. Observing clinical interviews conducted by Site Faculty,
    2. Performing clinical activities under direct supervision,
    3. Participating in mini-lectures or directed discussions (i.e., one-on-one instruction) with Site Faculty about selected clinical topics,
    4. Attending 12-step meetings (e.g., Open Meetings of Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, Overeaters Anonymous, Al-Anon, etc.).  Each student is required to attend a 12-step meeting; for example, an AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) or NA (Narcotics Anonymous) Open Meeting.  Each student should discuss experiences in this meeting with his/her attending clinical faculty.  Attendance at such a meeting is part of the attendance requirement.  Information regarding meeting times and locations can be obtained from the site Preceptor or from:
      1. Alcoholics Anonymous

    5. Reading assigned material,
    6. Attending didactic presentations,
    7. Writing case studies that emphasize clinical psychopharmacologic issues,
    8. Preparing case-based briefs about clinical issues in the Knowledge Development Modules,
    9. Attending didactic presentations, and
    10. Performing other assigned duties that are designed to assist the student in learning to perform core psychiatric skills with increased proficiency.
  6. Required Reading 
    The following book is required reading for this course.  The questions on the written exam for this course are based on the text and questions in this book.

    Toy, E.C. & Klamen, D.  (2009).  Case Files: Psychiatry (3rd ed.).  New York: McGraw Hill.  [This text contains case presentations with Q&As designed to develop clerkship-level clinical reasoning and knowledge in psychiatry.]

    Additional reading material may be assigned by the Preceptor and/or the Attending Physician at each rotation site.  This material will be different at each rotation site, and will be designed to augment training experiences unique to that site.  Assessment of the student’s understanding of such material will be conducted by the Site Faculty.  Such assessments will be reflected in the evaluation of the student’s clerkship performance.

  7. Supplemental Resources 
    The following are highly recommended resources for increasing depth and breadth of knowledge as well as effectiveness of skills:
    1. Stevens VM, Redwood SK, Neel JL, Bost RH, Van Winkle NW, and Pollak MH.  (2007).  Rapid Review Behavioral Science, 2nd ed.  Philadelphia: Mosby/Elsevier. [This familiar reference offers  concise yet comprehensive coverage of essential behavioral science and psychiatric knowledge.]
    2. Sadock, BJ, Sadock, VA, & Ruiz, P. (eds).  (2009).  Kaplan and Sadock’s Comprehensive Textbook of Psychiatry. Washington, D.C.: American Psychiatric Association.  [This two-volume reference offers comprehensive and in-depth coverage of psychiatric knowledge. Also available on-line through OSU-CHS Medical Library.]
    3. Carlat, D.J.  (2005).  The Psychiatric Interview (2nd ed.)  Philadelphia: Lippincott, Williams, & Wilkins.  [This is a concise compendium of interview questions designed to identify psychiatric disorders quickly and accurately.]
    4. Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition, Text Revision (DSM-IV-TR).  (2000).  Washington, D.C.: American Psychiatric Association.
    5. Hahn RK, Reist C, Alberrs LJ.  (2002).  Current Clinical Strategies: Psychiatry.  Laguna Hills, CA: Current Clinical Strategies Publishing.  [This inexpensive pocket-sized reference outlines key information for diagnosis and management of psychiatric disorders.  For example: summaries of admitting orders, progress notes, and discharge summaries are concisely presented.  Key clinical features of major disorders and guidelines for prescribing psychiatric medications are clearly and succinctly presented.  Also available as software for PDAs.]
  8. Pharmacology Case Studies (Note: New tools for advancement of psychiatric knowledge and skills are under development as part of the curriculum revision process.  These tools may be substituted for the Psychopharmacology Case Studies at some point during this academic year.  Students will be notified by email before such substitution is to occur.) 
    1. The purpose of these studies is to enhance students’ clinical psychopharmacology knowledge base, case presentation skills, and familiarity with relevant resources regarding the management of psychotropic medications, especially in the presence of complicating medical conditions.
    2. Students are to write two case studies.  These studies are to focus on psychopharmacological management of each case. 
      1. One of these cases should involve the use of first-line psychotropics in an otherwise healthy patient, and the other should involve a patient with a complicating general medical condition(s); for example, liver disease or cardiac disorder. 
      2. Ideally these studies will be based on cases that are seen at the clerkship site.  If such cases are not available during the rotation month, they should be based on appropriate cases with which the Preceptor or Attending Physician is familiar. 
      3. These case studies should present the clinical rationale for selecting the psychotropic medications that were chosen, for dealing with drug interactions or other medical complications, and for describing the resources to which the student referred when developing the study (see attached case study example). 
        1. Students should consult with their Site Faculty about case selection and the clinical reasoning involved in each case.  Either the student or Site Faculty may suggest appropriate cases to study.  The student should take the initiative in developing each case study, and then refine it in consultation with Site Faculty.  The Site Faculty will give feedback and offer suggestions so that the student will have the opportunity to refine the study using information and clinical reasoning that’s as accurate and complete as possible.
        2. These studies are to be brief.  Each one should be about two pages in length.  Use of a bulleted style rather than a prose style is encouraged.
        3. Patient confidentiality must be protected.  In keeping with HIPAA standards, these studies must not contain any personally identifying information (HPI).
        4. At least three published resources used in developing the case must be cited.
        5. Each student should consult his/her Site Faculty as the case study progresses.   Then, upon completion of each case study, students are to present the study to the Site Faculty for final review.  Preceptors will evaluate each study on a “pass-fail” basis according to whether or not the student has displayed knowledge and reasoning skills expected of medical school graduates.
        6. Upon final approval, students are then responsible for transmitting each case study electronically to the Department of Behavioral Sciences at karen.mull@okstate.edu.  Students are encouraged to submit studies as each has been successfully prepared and approved.  However, all studies are due by 5:00 p.m. on the last day of the rotation.  These studies will contribute to the course grade (see sections 11.3 and 12.4, below).
  9. Knowledge Development Modules (Note: New tools for advancement of psychiatric knowledge and skills are under development as part of the curriculum revision process. These tools may be substituted for the Knowledge Development Modules at some point during this academic year. Students will be notified by email before such substitution is to occur.)
    1. The purpose of these modules is to facilitate acquisition of knowledge about clinical psychiatry at a level expected of medical school graduates.  Learning objectives that describe these expectations are outlined in a document compiled by ADMSEP (available at www.admsep.org).  The learning objectives that have guided the development of these modules are detailed in this document.
    2. Students are to complete the two modules titled: 
      1. Cognitive Disorders, and
      2. Substance Use Disorders
    3. Completion should include:
      1. Researching and filling in the required information,
      2. Reviewing each module with his/her Site Faculty as described below (see section 9.6), and
      3. Submitting them as described below.
    4. Response brevity.  Brevity in writing responses is encouraged.  Use of phrases rather than complete sentences is suggested.  Use of bulleted or numbered lists is recommended.
    5. Reference citations.  Suggested resources to assist students in completing these modules are listed in the module material (see Knowledge Development Modules).  These resources are available in the OSU-CHS Medical Library.  However, students are not limited to these resources; additional resources may be used, if desired.  All resources that are used must be documented, as described in the module material.
    6. Preceptor consultation.  Students should discuss each module with his/her Site Faculty as responses to module questions are being compiled.  Site Faculty are encouraged to guide students in their efforts to compile responses that are sufficiently comprehensive and specific.  Site Faculty should offer feedback to students about whether their responses have reached the level expected of medical school graduates or still need additional development.  Those modules that reach this level are said to have “passed” and are ready for submission.
    7. Preceptor evaluation.  Preceptors are to judge each module on a “pass-fail” basis.  Preceptors should notify the Course Coordinator of any module that is still a “fail” at the end of the rotation.  Students should note that providing the Preceptor’s name and date of final review is required in successfully completed modules.
    8. Module submission.  All passing module material is to be submitted electronically to the Department of Behavioral Sciences at karen.mull@okstate.edu.  Students are encouraged to submit each module as it is completed and has “passed” (see section 9.5, above).  However, all modules are due by 5:00 p.m. on the last day of the rotation.
    9. These modules will contribute to the course grade (see sections 11.4 and 12.5, below).
  10. Student Responsibilities
    1. Student responsibilities that apply to all rotations are explained in the Clerkship Handbook.  Students should refer to this document to review these responsibilities.
    2. Each student must be prepared to present the results of his/her OSBI background check and immunization record to the Preceptor or designated administrative official at the training site. 

      In addition to this general requirement, however, some sites have specific requirements, as follows:
      1. Veterans Affairs Medical Center.
        1. Students who are to complete this clerkship at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Tulsa/Muskogee must complete required fingerprinting and VA background checks.  Students will normally receive an e-mail to start this process about 60 days before beginning the rotation, but must take responsibility for initiating this process if this e-mail is not received as expected. 
        2. If students have questions or concerns about this, they should feel free to contact Ms. Stacie Williams directly (see section 14.6 for contact information).
      2. Laureate Psychiatric Clinic and Hospital.
        1. Students who are to complete this clerkship at this site must complete and submit a packet of information.  This packet is to contain two completed forms: (1) the Medical Student Check-In form, and (2) theConfidentiality Agreement form.  The packet is also to contain a letter of good standing, malpractice insurance verification, a photo ID, and a current TB skin test.  Debbie Evans in the OSU-COM Clinical Education Office can supply to students a letter of good standing that includes insurance verification (debra.evans@okstate.edu). In addition, please read the Medical Student Information Sheet and theEmployee Parking Garage documents for helpful information.
        2. Students must submit the packet at least two weeks prior to beginning this clerkship so that computer and security access can be arranged by the starting date. This packet should be submitted to Rita Sorrels atrksorrels@saintfrancis.com.
        3. On or before the first day of the rotation (before is desirable), students are to report to the Medical Staff Office to get their ID badge before reporting to a clinical area.  Students may not be on a clinical floor without this badge.  Students are to be in the company of an attending physician or a resident when in a clinical area.  Students may wish to consult the attached map for directions to specified locations in the St. Francis/Laureate site.
      3. Griffin Memorial Hospital.
        1. Students who are to complete this clerkship at this site must complete and submit a packet of information. Students should contact Ms. Pam Melton at least a month before the clerkship is to begin. She may be reached by email at psmelton@odmhsas.org, or see section 14 below for additional contact information.
      4. Sites for the core Clerkship in Psychiatry are in the Tulsa and Oklahoma City metropolitan areas.  In keeping with the Clerkship Handbook, students who must travel an extended distance from one of these areas to their next rotation will take travel time from the distant rotation, not from the Psychiatry Clerkship

11. Course Evaluations

  1. Performance Evaluation. The performance of each student at the training site will be evaluated by his/her Preceptor with input from the Attending Physician(s), if applicable.
    1. At the completion of the rotation, a formal evaluation of each student’s overall performance will be conducted by that student’s Preceptor.  This evaluation will be submitted in an OSU-COM form, the Oklahoma State Clinical Education Clerkship Survey.  It is an on-line tool that yields quantitative ratings of each student’s performance.  It is to be filled out by the Preceptor in consultation with any Attending Physicians who have worked with the student. 
    2. The ratings on this form and the comments provided by the Site Faculty will reflect a careful assessment of the student’s performance.  The first 13 ratings provide a quantitative assessment of each student’s performance.  The 14th rating, the overall rating, provides the numerical basis for this portion of the grade.  It will constitute 50% of each student’s final grade for this course.
    3. Midway through the rotation, the Preceptor and/or Attending Physician should give informal, verbal feedback to the student about his/her performance to date.  The physician is encouraged to use the evaluation form described in the preceding paragraph as the format for this feedback.  This information should help the student identify strengths and weaknesses in his/her performance and improve weaknesses prior to the final evaluation.
  2. Written Exam. Each student must take a written exam covering the required readings.
    1. Exam questions will be based on the questions to be found throughout the required textbook (see section 6). The results of this exam will constitute 30% of the final grade for the rotation.
    2. The written exam will be administered at 1:30 p.m. on the last business day of the calendar month, with the exception of December, as noted below (see section 14).  The exam for the December rotation will be given earlier than usual because of the holidays.  Please note that this exam date does not mark the completion of the attendance obligations for this month (see page 5 in the Clerkship Handbook for additional information).
    3. The exam dates for the 2013-14 academic year for those students doing conventional calendar-month rotations are:

      Friday, July 26, 2013
      Friday, August 23, 2013
      Friday, September 20, 2013
      Friday, October 25, 2013
      Friday, November 22, 2013
      Friday, December 20, 2013 
      Friday, February 07, 2014
      Friday March 07, 2014
      Friday, April 04, 2014
      Friday, May 09, 2014
      Friday, June 06, 2014
      Thursday, July 03, 2014 

      Exam dates are for December 2013.

    4. The exam will be given at the Department of Behavioral Sciences on the main campus of OSU-COM in Tulsa.
    5. Each student must also take the COMAT Exam in Psychiatry.  It is administered by the Clinical Education Department.  It will be given at 3:00 p.m. following the written exam for the course. The COMAT will be given in the OSU-Tulsa computer lab; students must be in place by 2:45. 

      Beginning July 2012, if a student does not pass the COMAT Exam, he/she must enter a formal remediation process as described by each course coordinator including entering into a mentorship with a designated faculty member in the department.  The designated faculty member will direct the student to review specific topics of weakness as identified by their personalized COMAT Exam score sheet.  After remediation, the student will be eligible to retake the COMAT Exam.  If the student fails the same COMAT Exam a second time, a letter grade of "I" for incomplete will be assigned and the student will be referred to the Academic Standards Committee for a plan of corrective action.

    6. Questions or concerns about the COMAT Exam should be addressed to Ms. Debbie Evans by phone (918-561-1181) or email (debra.evans@okstate.edu), or to Dr. Bost.
  3. Case Studies. The case studies are graded on a “pass-fail” basis.  Each of the case studies contributes 2.5 points each to the final course grade.  Any missing or failing case study will receive no points; no partial credit will be awarded.  Successful completion of both of these studies constitutes 5% of the course grade.
  4. Knowledge Development Modules. The modules are graded on a “pass-fail” basis.  Each of the modules contributes five points to the final course grade.  Any missing or failing module will receive no points; no partial credit will be awarded.  Successful completion of both of these modules constitutes 10% of the course grade.
  5. Site Evaluation. Students are required to formally evaluate their rotation experience.  This evaluation is to be submitted through OSU-COM’s on-line Education Management System.  Site Evaluations are due within 7 days of the completion of the rotation.  Grades are normally computed and submitted to the Dean soon after this date; if this material is not available to the Course Coordinator by this time, grade computation will include a “0” for this portion of the grade.  This requirement constitutes 5% of the course grade.
  6. Attendance. Each student must be in attendance at all assigned rotation activities.  This includes attending a 12-step meeting (e.g., AA or NA Open Meeting).  If absences occur, students must make arrangements with the Preceptor or Attending Physician to complete equivalent activities to those missed during the absence.  Failure to complete this requirement will result in a grade reduction, unsatisfactory non-cognitive grade, and/or requirement that the rotation be completed.
12. Grading Procedures Grade computation will utilize the following procedures:
  1. Evaluation by Preceptor.  Preceptors report their evaluations of student performance via the on-line Education Management System provided by OSU-COM.  The performance of each student is rated along fourteen dimensions.
    1. Five performance descriptors are provided for each dimension.   The Preceptor rates each student’s performance by endorsing one of these descriptors on each of these dimensions.  A percentage score is automatically computed.  This percentage reflects the Preceptor’s perceptions of the student’s performance.
    2. The first 13 of these are for informational purposes.  The rating on 14th dimension, the overall performance rating, is used for grade computation purposes.
    3. The overall performance percentage score is divided in half to constitute the performance score.  This score will constitute 50% of the student’s course grade.
  2. Written Exam. 
    1. The raw score for the written exam is the total number of correct responses out of 50 questions.  This exam raw score will be converted to an Exam Total Score by multiplying the raw score by the conversion factor of 0.6. 
    2. The purpose of this conversion is to adjust the raw score to a number that represents 30% of the final grade.
  3. Site Evaluation.
    1. Five points will be credited for completing the Site Evaluation.
    2. No points will be credited in the Site Evaluation is not completed by the student and entered into the Education Management System.
  4. Case Studies.
    1. Two and one-half (2.5) points will be credited for each of the case studies that have been successfully completed and turned in for a total of five possible points.
  5. Knowledge Development Modules.
    1. Five points will be credited for completing and submitting each module for a total of ten possible points.
  6. The Total Course Points will be derived by adding points earned on the Evaluation by Preceptor, Written Exam, Site Evaluation, Case Studies, and Knowledge Development Modules. 
    1. Total Course Points ending in .50-.99 will be rounded up to the next higher whole number; Total Course Points ending in .49 or less will be rounded down to the next lower whole number. 
    2. Letter grades will be assigned according to procedures outlined in the Student Handbook. 
    3. Both letter grades and Total Course Points are reported to the Dean and to the College Registrar.
  7. The Course Coordinator determines and issues a grade for each student.
13. Elective Rotations

    Many students choose to pursue additional psychiatric clerkship training beyond the required core rotation.  Interested students should refer to the “Clerkship Elective” section of the Clerkship Handbook for information on requirements for these rotations.

Questions about a Clinical Performance Evaluation should be directed to the Preceptor during the formal evaluation at the end of rotation.  If a grievance cannot be satisfactorily resolved in this manner, the assistance of the Course Coordinator may be requested.
