Description
Exposes the student to advanced principles and concepts of child psychiatry. The student is based primarily on the inpatient pediatric psychiatry consultation-liaison service at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford (LPCH). Clinical experience will involve consultation and the treatment of psychological issues in children with medical illness. Examples include depression and anxiety in the medically-ill child, pediatric conversion disorders, somatoform disorders and medically-related posttraumatic stress disorder. Students will develop skills in interviewing children and parents, learn team treatment skills for children with psychosomatic and psychiatric illnesses, observe family therapy, and produce case work-ups of children with a range of behavioral disorders. Students may have the option of spending one day/week in the Stanford child psychiatry outpatient clinic observing new evaluations in subspecialty clinics (anxiety disorders, mood disorders, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder, neuropsychiatry/pervasive developmental disorders, pediatric pain). Students may also observe evaluations on the inpatient adolescent eating disorder program. A case presentation is required at the end of the clerkship. Students are supervised by the consult service attending psychiatrist, and the child psychiatry fellows.
