Advanced Training in Child, Adolescent and Family Psychiatry

The Child, Adolescent and Family Psychiatry Course for Advanced Trainees at HETI is a two-year training program accredited with the RANZCP for Advanced Training in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry in NSW. Trainees who are interested in this training need to initially apply with RANZCP. (See RANZCP for more information)

If successful, trainees enrol into the HETI Advanced Training in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry program. Trainees will undertake clinical work in a variety of child and adolescent psychiatry units four days per week and attend HETI North Parramatta Campus one day per week for seminars and small group supervision.

Training can also be undertaken part-time (minimum 0.5 FTE). The course equips psychiatrists to work in the public and private sectors, in direct clinical and consultancy roles, in service development, management, advocacy and training of medical and allied health professionals. Assessment is based on satisfactory course participation, six-monthly supervisor's reports, a logbook of clinical work and other projects in accordance with RANZCP Advanced Training requirements.
