The attitudes towards psychiatry of thirty, fourth year medical students were studied before and after a two week clinical posting, using an attitudes questionnaire. The results indicated that a two week posting in the specialty was not sufficient to significantly influence students«SQ» attitudes in a positive direction. The implications of these findings for undergraduate psychiatric education are discussed.
