Hollywood Knights

Hollywood Knights is a course taught in the Division of Consultation Psychiatry at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, NJ. In addition to being the flagship site for our 3rd-year medical students at RWJMS, our Division also includes learners from various residency training programs, the Earnest Mario School of Pharmacy, the Summer Clinical Internship Program, and the social psychology internship at Rutgers University.

C/L faculty balance a diverse clinical experience with our educational mission that reviews psychopathology and psychopharmacology through popular culture. This webpage is dedicated to Hollywood Knights; our pop culture curriculum condensed into the 6-week core Psychiatry clerkship. Learners are encouraged to browse this webpage as a reference.
