The KTGF Medical Student Program (MSP) at UCLA works with the Psychiatry Interest Group to provide four lunch talks each year for first and second year students. Program participants also participate in a "speed mentoring" event and a Career Day event for first and second year students. The UCLA MSP works with the Rieger Foundation to coordinate a four week paid fellowship during the summer between the first and second year in child psychiatry clinical work. The MSP also sponsors shadowing in the clinics and wards in the first and second year, preceptorships in the third year, and career mentors in the fourth year. In addition, the UCLA MSP sponsors research projects in all four years, and provides career counseling across the years.
