Course summary

Overview

This Postgraduate Diploma in Mental Health is designed for doctors in training who are preparing for a career in Psychiatry, General Practice or General Medicine and is suitable for Trainee Psychiatrists preparing for College examinations. In conjunction with a clinical placement in a mental health setting, this programme enables students to gain a good understanding of the major psychiatric disorders, approaches to treatment and psychopharmacology.

Clinical training forms a major component of the programme, and each student should have a Clinical Tutor on their placement. Regular clinical supervision should be provided by Consultants and the Tutor should ensure that training is provided by experts in the discipline. Please note that the clinical attachment in Psychiatry must overlap with the academic year of the programme of seminars attended.
