The Psychiatry Student Interest Group is a resident physician and medical student-run interest group affiliated with the Michigan Medicine Department of Psychiatry.

PsychSIGN acts to educate and enrich the medical community on topics of psychiatry and mental illness, as well as promote interest and provide resources on psychiatry as a profession. We coordinate a lunchtime lecture series on psychiatry-related topics, host movie nights to discuss relevant themes in current films, and coordinate a mentorship program to match interested students with resident mentors.

We are affiliated with the national Psychiatry Student Interest Group Network (PsychSIGN), the mission of which is to "function as a central hub for the exchange of ideas, information, and resources for student coalitions in psychiatry and promote the discourse for psychiatric education in the medical school community and for advocacy and justice in mental health as an integral part of health overall."
