Abstract

For over 14 years, students completing a psychiatry clerkship were asked to rate their educational experience. Comparisons were made across clinical assignment, length of rotation (6 vs. 8 weeks), and teaching modes. Consultation and acute services were rated higher than open adult or child/adolescent services. General units were rated higher than specialty units. Ratings were higher for 8-week rotations, and case conferences were preferred to lecture formats. Ratings were not significantly correlated with National Board of Medical Examiners examination scores, which were higher during years with 8-week rotations and case conferences. There was a tendency for students on the consultation and acute services to enter psychiatry residencies at a higher rate.
