We welcome and encourage medical students to do elective rotations in psychiatry during their fourth year. Fourth-year medical students who wish to rotate in psychiatry are encouraged to use their creativity and design a rotation that would be of most interest to them.
Sub-internships are available in medical psychiatry, general adult psychiatry, inpatient and outpatient child psychiatry, adult outpatient psychiatry, sleep disorders medicine, addiction psychiatry and consultation-liaison psychiatry. Other options for fourth-year elective rotations include rotationing at Whitfield Hospital, which is a local state mental hospital; rotations with community-based psychiatrists in Mississippi; and rotations with psychiatrists at other medical centers in the United States or abroad.
Fourth-year students may be interested in doing a research project or writing a journal article in an area of interest. Other possibilities as part of a fourth-year elective rotation include attending and participating in national psychiatry conferences, such as annual American Psychiatric Association (APA) meetings or local (state) APA meetings.
Fourth-year elective rotations must have departmental approval.
