Bu öğrencilerden psikiyatri stajı öncesi ve sonrasında 'Psikiyatriye yönelik tutum ve düşünceler' anketi doldurmaları istenmiştir. 38 sorudan oluşan ankette psikiyatri, psikiyatrik tedavi ve psikiyatristlere yönelik tutumlar hakkında sorular bulunmaktadır. Analizlerde SPSS Paket Program 20,0 sürümü kullanılmıştır. Kolmogorov-Smirnov, Shapiro Wilk ve Paired Samples Test kullanıldı.

Uzmanlık alanı olarak öğrencilerin %49,0’u “dâhili bilimleri”, %49,0’u “cerrahi bilimleri”, %2,0’si “temel bilimleri” tercih etmekteydi. Toplam 38 anket sorusundan 14’ünde staj öncesine göre staj sonrasında anlamlı fark bulundu.

Sonuç: Tıp fakültesi öğrencilerinde, staj öncesine göre staj sonrasında psikiyatrik tedavi ve konsültasyon hizmetlerinin yararları konusunda olumlu tutum değişikliklerinin olduğu, psikiyatri hastaları ve psikiyatristler hakkında olumsuz düşüncelerin azaldığı, psikiyatri bilimi hakkında genel olarak olumlu değişimlere rağmen uzmanlık alanı olarak tercih edilmesinde azalma olduğu görülmüştür.
