Medical Student Education

During your clerkship in psychiatry, you build skills for interviewing, assessment, psychotherapy and treatment planning.

Training in our department gives you an outstanding educational experience with faculty who have a strong commitment to you and your future career.

Each year, approximately 4 percent of medical students nationally choose to specialize in psychiatry. At UB, we consistently exceed that average: About 8 to 10 percent of our students choose psychiatry each year, with many deciding to enter our residency program.

Our lively, friendly departmental culture supports your research, professional growth and personal satisfaction during your time as a medical student.
