The goal of this module is to demonstrate how a neuroscience perspective can be incorporated into a comprehensive case formulation. Each session focuses on the presentation of a patient with a particular psychiatric illness. Residents are expected to read and formulate the case prior to the session. Time is reserved for peer supervision around case formulation. A panel of experts reflecting diverse clinical perspectives – typically including neuroscience, psychotherapy, and social psychiatry— is then asked to comment on how each clinician would approach the case material and how their formulation would affect treatment. Ample time is left for questions and for general discussion.
