Session 5: Psychiatry Update, Review, & Self-Assessment: Utilizing Active Learning Methods (Aug 1-5)
Psychiatry is expanding at such a rapid pace that it has become difficult to keep track of what we know and how we know it. This course is intended for anyone wanting to brush up on psychiatry and will be a broad overview of the field. Although we will focus on practical clinical information, we will also consider such emerging technologies and fields as neuromodulation and advances in genetics.
But how can we learn so much material in a short time? Although lectures or books may be engaging, this is often not the case, and we can find it difficult to learn during these passive activities. With this in mind, our course employs multiple techniques for learning, emphasizing an interactive app-roach that will maximize engagement. To aid learning and retention and help focus on areas in most need of review, we will take a question and answer approach using such methods as audience response questions, as well as team and case based learning. We will also interweave brief presentations organized as “top ten” lists of what you need to know about a particular disorder or discipline. Please bring a laptop, tablet, smartphone, or some other device to access the internet to retrieve reference and supporting materials.
