Medical students with an interest in issues at the intersection of Psychiatry and Law are invited to contact the Faculty Member in order to identify a mutually suitable research topic. The goal will be to produce a publication-quality, literature-based project that will serve to enhance the student's educational experience and assist in identifying potentially worthwhile avenues for future training and research. Students can review the Faculty Member's own clinical, legal, teaching, public service, and research interests at www.drogin.net.
For example, a student with an interest in involuntary civil commitment would review statutes, case law, regulations, law review articles, and medical treatises under supervision, and then collaborate with the Faculty Member in generating a paper that would identify the current state of the law, the perspectives of the legal and psychiatric communities (both academic and clinical), and prospects for reform of the ways in which patients are subjected to the imposition of custodial mental health treatment. This is just one example; what issues do YOU find interesting?
