With the need to improve psychiatric care to a broader cross section of the community, the Master of Psychiatry is ideal for any doctor with an interest in developing their knowledge and skills in working with patients experiencing mental illness. Offered either part-time over three years or full-time over one year, this academic qualification explores theoretical concepts in psychiatry and their relationship to clinical practice through core and selective subjects, including an optional research component. Eligible international students are able to undertake the one year full-time offering of the Master of Psychiatry on a student visa (CRICOS: 079406C)

The course also satisfies the Formal Education course requirements of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists so will be particularly relevant for psychiatry trainees.
