During the semester vacation, the students from third year Psychology, underwent 14 days of clinical observation and Training at Yenepoya Medical College Hospital, Derlakatte. Guided by the HOD of the department of Psychiatry Dr. V.V Mohan Chandra, the students got an opportunity to go on rounds and interact with the patients in the psychiatry wards. During their posting, the students were exposed to ECT on the patients, case studies, case history taking as well as psychological tests. The 14 rigorous days spent at the hospital were indeed helpful in strengthening the roots of the students, who wish to pursue clinical psychology as a career ahead.
