Courses      Clerkships

The Trauma Psychiatry clerkship teaches how trauma impacts the lives and health of patients; lessons learned are generalizable to all areas of medicine (i.e., "trauma-informed medicine”). Students work with people suffering from PTSD relating to sexual assault, combat or other traumas who are receiving ambulatory-type treatments in an intensive, multidisciplinary setting. Students will have direct patient responsibility, provide evidence-based psychopharmacologic and psychotherapeutic care and longitudinal management, and facilitate recovery. Students will gain perspective on trauma in our world and the importance of sensitive and effective treatment for this all too common condition (7.8% lifetime prevalence). Please note: Visiting students must obtain approval from Ms. Quynh Dang prior to applying for this clerkship. Please email requests to
