Description:Valid start weeks for 4-week blocks are: Weeks 5, 9, 13, 17, and 21.

The medical student will be actively involved in many aspects of forensic psychiatry including civil litigation, workman's compensation, malpractice, civil commitment, and guardianship. There may be opportunities to be involved in criminal forensic issues. The student will work with several instructors within the Department of Psychiatry but will primarily meet with the Course Director a minimum of two hours per week. They will also work with The BJH Manager of Case Management and The City of St Louis Probate Court. The student will also be assigned readings of landmark cases, textbooks, psychiatric expert opinions, legal filing with the probate court and attend civil hearings.

The student will learn relevant criminal statutes regarding competency and civil commitment, causation in civil litigation, the concept of medical malpractice and risk assessment of violence and suicide. There may be the opportunity to witness sexually violent predator evaluations and/or treatment. The student will be required to research and write an opinion on a specific approved topic in forensic psychiatry. The objectives will be measured by attendance and by formal evaluation of the student's participation and knowledge during the supervision discussion. It will also be determined by the originality, thoroughness, and quality of the research paper.

M85 Psych 880Schizophrenia Precursors and Prodromal States0.0 Unit
Description:Valid start weeks for 4-week blocks are: Weeks 1, 5, and 9.

This is an opportunity for trainees to gain experience in the evaluation of children and adolescents who may be at high risk for schizophrenia. The rotation would center around the "First Contact Assessment Service", which evaluates patients who show characteristics suggestive of prodromal schizophrenia (such as new-onset attenuated psychotic symptoms along with recent deterioration in functioning) and/or early life characteristics that may indicate risk for developing schizophrenia later in life (for example, nonspecific social/emotional/behavioral symptoms in a child/adolescent with a strong family history of schizophrenia.). Since the full symptoms of schizophrenia are often preceded by a wide range of childhood behavioral and developmental abnormalities, this rotation would also help trainees integrate information regarding the continuity between childhood development and adult psychopathology. Trainee would observe all aspects of First Contact evaluations (including semi-structured diagnostic interviews and examination of subtle neurological signs), participate in case discussions, and observe follow-up consultations involving patients with psychotic and/or complex neurodevelopmental disorders. Trainee would also be required to write a literature review on a topic relevant to the rotation.

M85 Psych 889Interventional Psychiatry0.0 Unit
Description:Valid start weeks for 4-week blocks are: Weeks 1, 5, 9, 13, 17, 21, 25, 29, 33, 37, and 41.

Interventional Psychiatry involves the application of procedures including ECT (Electroconvulsive Therapy), rTMS (Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) and other neuromodulation techniques such as VNS (Vagus Nerve Stimulation) in the treatment of medication-resistant psychiatric illness. The student will learn about indications for ECT and rTMS, participate in the clinical management of patients undergoing these interventions and will receive training in the application of these procedures. As cases become available, the student will be involved in evaluations of patients receiving VNS. The student will participate in the evaluations of patients referred to the Treatment Resistant Depression Clinic supervised by Dr. Charles Conway. The student will be encouraged to review appropriate literature and make clinically relevant case-oriented presentations. The student will be expected to write a review of a self-selected clinic topic relevant to interventional psychiatry. As advances in the field occur, the rotation may also involve exposure to individuals receiving other modalities of intervention, such as esketamine for treatment resistant depression.

Label

Home/Ident

A course may be either a “Home” course or an “Ident” course.

A “Home” course is a course that is created, maintained and “owned” by one academic department (aka the “Home” department). The “Home” department is primarily responsible for the decision making and logistical support for the course and instructor.

An “Ident” course is the exact same course as the “Home” (i.e. same instructor, same class time, etc), but is simply being offered to students through another department for purposes of registering under a different department and course number.

Students should, whenever possible, register for their courses under the department number toward which they intend to count the course. For example, an AFAS major should register for the course "Africa: Peoples and Cultures" under its Ident number, L90 306B, whereas an Anthropology major should register for the same course under its Home number, L48 306B.
