First Year Behavioral Science Course


The Behavioral Science Course spans a 12 week period from March through June. The course has two major components: lectures and clinical experiences.

In general, there are three lectures of 50 minutes each on most Tuesday and Friday mornings (and occasionally at other times). Lectures are held in the Cardinal Cooke ("Orange") Auditorium. The content of the course lectures are divided into three major areas: psychopathology, human development, and issues relating to the physician and society.

On one afternoon a week, students visit affiliated hospitals for clinical interviews. Some weeks, on another afternoon, students attend a clinical case conference at the Behavioral Health Center, Westchester Medical Center, Room B-304, third floor.
