This book PSYCHIATRIC CASE CLERKING FOR MEDICAL STUDENTS has its origins during the pandemic when the biweekly tutorials for the medical students at the university where I teach were held through zoom, google meet and teams. Wondering if students could understand what was being said I decided to make a word document which I sent to the tutorial students. Then I realized that this document actually simplified my work and produced better results in terms of completeness of clerking. In addition, I felt that this compilation made clerking simple, systematic and easy to understand for the undergraduate medical students. The contents of this book has been repeatedly used during my tutorials on the many batches of medical students I have had the pleasure to teach.
