I was a psychology major in undergrad before switching to religion at the end of my sophomore year. I took several psychology courses and I do think the way they help you to think might help you to understand some things. However, I agree that most of the psychiatry clerkship is about learning the mental status exam, diagnosing mental illnesses, and learning psychopharm. Except for maybe abnormal psychology, I don't think courses in undergrad psychology help too much with these areas. Of course I never took the more advanced classes in college.
