Psychiatry plays an increasingly important role in medicine and society due to the frequency of mental illness and emergence of new research and innovation. This contemporary recovery-oriented program fosters collaboration between Psychiatry Trainees and other medical specialists including General Practitioners and Rural and Remote Medicine Specialists, in order to ensure continuity between medical professions and support the journey of recovery for individuals with mental illness.
The Psychiatric Medicine program for Psychiatry Trainees has been accredited with the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists (RANZCP) to meet Stage 1 and Stage 2 requirements of the RANZCP Fellowship training program, as well as fulfilling the requirements of a Masters level postgraduate qualification in Psychiatry.
While face to face attendance is preferred, no restriction has been placed on mode of study.
