Psychiatry Student Interest Group
The Psychiatry Student Interest Group (P.S.I.G.) was established to increase interactive exposure to the field of psychiatry. At each meeting, a psychiatrist is invited to facilitate a discussion on a particular topic or specialty in psychiatry. This group also encourages interest group students to shadow psychiatrists and facilitates involvement in research projects with faculty members. P.S.I.G. also promotes the discourse for psychiatric education in the medical school community.
Dr. Krystle Graham (firstname.lastname@example.org) is the advisor for P.S.I.G. and provides liaison between the group and the Department of Psychiatry and Health Behavior. Membership is open to all interested MCG students with no membership fee. Elections for student representative(s) will be held before the last meeting of spring semester. The student representative(s) serve as president of P.S.I.G. and are involved in organizing meetings, maintaining contact with the national PsychSIGN leaders, and working with advisors and other psychiatry faculty. The 2013-2014 Psychiatry Student Interest Group Co-Presidents are John Shapiro (email@example.com; 770-712-5246) and Elizabeth Ahn (firstname.lastname@example.org; 678-215-8850).
