Where can you gain experience in psychiatry?

You can go to nearby hospitals and ask for intern experience within the psychiatry department. As well, you can look in the phone book for local psychiatrists, call them and ask if you can shadow them for pertinent experience. Remember that you will get your best experience opportunities at teaching hospitals... those are hospitals associated with universities or you can contact local hospitals to see if they are a community type hospital (public hospitals, private hospitals are motivated by profit and may not be inclined to teaching).
