The introduction to Psychiatric Assessment
By Hamed S. on 01. July 2017 for Psychiatric Assessment

As a final year medical student with little to no background in psychiatry and starting my final term in psychiatry in a couple of weeks, I found the the introduction useful, well covered and interesting. I look forward to learning more about the disorders in future videos.
