The Department of Psychiatry offers several Advanced Clinical Electives (ACEs) and Acting Internships (AIs) for Vanderbilt or visiting medical students in their fourth year of education. Each of these educational opportunities provides a level of responsibility that facilitates learning about the practice of psychiatry. These experiences are highly rewarding for those considering a career in Psychiatry. Others, who may choose other specialties as careers, will find the enrichment of Psychiatry rotations invaluable in learning to provide care for individuals with common mental illnesses.

Vanderbilt students may register for elective courses directly with the registrar.

Visiting students should apply for through the Office of Enrollment Services.
