Medical Student Psychiatric Interest Group

The Psychiatric Interest Group (PING) is a student-organized interest group for medical students interested in Psychiatry. The faculty advisor for this group is Dr. Fauzia Mahr.  The society organizes many social events related to improving awareness in Psychiatry and panel discussions to improve the education of medical students in various aspects of Psychiatry.

Among the many events organized annually are the Psychiatric awareness day, occasional movie nights, multiple panel discussions with key faculty members in Psychiatry, field trips and periodic lunchtime sales to raise money for the club and build networks.

This society also helps coordinate a post-match party for those who are graduating and headed into psychiatry residency and offers mentoring by residents and fellowship trainees in Psychiatry for medical students as an additional support mechanism.
