Description
Consists of the evaluation of older individuals with psychiatric illness in an inpatient setting. The inpatient program offers students opportunities to learn about evaluation and treatment strategies for depression, psychotic disorders, anxiety, cognitive impairment, and other illnesses in the elderly. Many patients have comorbid, non-psychiatric illnesses which are considered as possible contributors to their psychiatric symptoms. The bio-psycho-social model is emphasized. Family involvement and meetings are to be expected.
