From the Author:

There are many books on the market focusing on the factual information you need to know for the psychiatry clerkship. While this information is certainly important for success on the clerkship, it doesn’t actually prepare you for doing the rotation. These books fail to teach you how to approach patients, maintain your safety, and build rapport with patients. They don’t prepare you for the usual daily activities of the rotation, such as rounding and writing notes. These are skills that each of us has had to develop, usually by making mistakes and having them corrected by our former residents and attendings. In writing Psychiatry Clerkship: 150 Biggest Mistakes and How to Avoid Them, we thought of all of the mistakes that we made on our psychiatry clerkships and continue to see students make in our current roles as psychiatric residents and attending. In addition to pointing out these common mistakes, we offer advice on how to avoid making them yourself. We hope that you will be able to learn from our missteps and those of your predecessors and not be doomed to repeat them. By avoiding the errors made by most students (and perhaps by your fellow students who haven’t read this book), you are certain to stand out on your rotation.
