Abstract

Some educators may view correctional settings as substandard sites for medical student clerkships in psychiatry. The authors report on 2 years of medical student evaluations of teaching and student performance outcomes from a psychiatric clerkship conducted in outpatient mental health clinics in a county jail system. When compared with other clerkship sites, the jail sites were rated equivalently for teaching and patient variety, and students at the jail sites performed comparably on exams and preceptor ratings.
