The “Clinical Neuroscience Conversation” module includes a collection of short teaching videos, each 10 minutes or less, directly linked to a hypothetical clinical scenario. This collection of resources is intended to bridge the gap between the classroom and the clinic in order to bring an understanding of neuroscience to the day-to-day practice of psychiatry. Although these resources could be used in the classroom or for self-study, they are particularly suited to teaching in clinical settings. Loosely modeled on the “One Minute Preceptor,” these resources can be used with trainees in the moment, with minimal preparation, and adapted for discussion of real-world cases.
Participants first discuss and formulate a clinical case (either from their own clinical service or one provided). They then watch a brief educational video highlighting a core neuroscience concept related to the case at hand. Afterwards they return to the case and discuss how this new information might enrich their original formulation or treatment plan. Participants may take this a step further and role play how they might incorporate a neuroscience perspective directly into conversations with patients.
