Why choose this course?

The MSc in Psychiatric Practice is a taught, masters programme for clinicians, wishing to develop or extend practical skills, knowledge and experience in psychiatric practice.

It has an emphasis on developing practical competencies; good diagnostic skills, appropriate and timely management of long term psychiatric disorders to reflect current trends in psychiatry.

This programme is supplemented by lectures, seminars, workshops, clinical skills demonstrations, clinical placements and conference presentations by academic staff and invited expert clinicians.

Careers

This programme offers excellent opportunities for continuing professional development for practicing health, social and primary care professionals. It is an MSc programme, but UK clinicians can choose to study specific modules relevant to their professional practice or select from short courses.

This programme fulfils the interprofessional learning agenda and reflects the varied roles and functions adopted by professionals destined for psychiatry and other clinicians with a special interest.

Teaching methods

You will experience a wide variety of teaching methods throughout the programme including: interactive and ‘key-note’ lectures, seminars and workshops incorporating for example case studies, role play, scenario based learning and discussion groups covering a wide variety of topics. Individual and group based tutorials. Skills based demonstrations / workshops and the use of technologies for example video, podcasts, and other e-packages designed to enhance learning and teaching. These resources are supported by a well stocked learning resource centre and via a virtual learning environment called StudyNet which enables you to access learning resources on line 24 hours and day, 7 days a week. The course is intense and will require students to be "self directed" learners.

Work Placement

Full Time, overseas students do not require GMC registration as this programme does not require direct patient contact and management.

Professional Accreditations

The programme prepares specialist trainees for Membership of the Royal College of Psychiatrists (MRC Psych).

This is a joint programme provided by the School and King’s College London Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience. This course provides participants with the knowledge and skills to initiate, develop and oversee mental health programmes in low-resource settings, and to conduct and critically evaluate research on global mental health. These skills will equip students to make valuable contributions in research, public health, policy and practice.

Career prospects

Graduates enter careers in national mental health policy and planning, epidemiological and mental health services research, and advisory and advocacy roles in governments, international agencies and non-governmental organisations.

Applications for this course are processed by King's College London, not by the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine. Further details and how to apply.

Objectives

By the end of the course, students will able to:

- demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the mental health challenges facing low resource settings

- devise locally appropriate and feasible strategies to reduce the burden of mental disorders

- develop research protocols to investigate key issues in global mental health including epidemiological, intervention- and policy-related questions

- apply research skills to monitor and evaluate mental health programmes

Structure

Students complete eight modules, five of which are "core" (compulsory), pass two written examinations and complete a project report.

Term 1:
There is a one-week orientation period on studying at the School and KCL-IOPPN as well as sessions on key computing and study skills

Core modules at the School
- Fundamentals in Global Mental Health
- Statistics for Epidemiology and Population Health

Core module at KCL-IOPPN
- Principles of Psychiatric Research and Psychiatric Epidemiology

Term 2:
Core modules at the School

Undergraduate medical students can take a year out either to pursue related studies or work. The School welcomes applications from medical students wishing to intercalate after their third year of study from any recognised university in the world.

Why intercalate with us?:

Reputation: The School has an outstanding international reputation in public health & tropical medicine and is at the forefront of global health research. It is highly rated in a number of world rankings including:

- World’s leading research-focused graduate school (Times Higher Education World Rankings, 2013)
- Third in the world for social science and public health (US News Best Global Universities Ranking, 2014)
- Second in UK for research impact (Research Exercise Framework 2014)
- Top in Europe for impact (Leiden Ranking, 2015)

Highly recognised qualification: possessing a Master's from the School will give you a focused understanding of health and disease, broaden your career prospects and allow you to be immersed in research in a field of your choice.

Valuable skills: you will undertake an independent research project (summer project) in your chosen topic, equipping you with research skills that will distinguish you in a clinical environment. While your medical qualification will give you a breadth of knowledge; undertaking an intercalated degree will allow you to explore your main area of interest in greater depth.

Research profile

Our Division of Psychiatry is internationally recognised as a world-class clinical research and teaching centre.

We focus on the mechanisms underlying the development of major psychiatric disorders, including autism, bipolar disorder, depression, dementia and schizophrenia.

Expertise and studies

We have a particular expertise in longitudinal, clinical and biological studies of large cohorts of people at high risk of psychotic disorders drawn from across Scotland. Our studies include:

  • the Edinburgh High Risk Study, which examines 200 young people at high genetic risk of schizophrenia over a period of ten years
  • the Edinburgh Study of Co-Morbidity, which examines teenagers at high cognitive risk for schizophrenia
  • the Bipolar Family Study, which examines over 200 young people at familial risk of bipolar disorder and controls

In psychiatric genetics, we take part in international genome wide association studies and focus on analyses of candidate genes including DISC-1, NDE-1 and DLG-2.

We also have a major focus on the functional genetics of psychiatric illness and have investigated the effects of variation in genes, such as DISC-1, on brain structure and function, as well as their programming during development in stem cell models.

We have demonstrated, for the first time, that structural and functional MRI changes precede the onset of psychosis and could be used as a diagnostic aid.

We have also demonstrated that imaging can be used to separate autism from learning disability in people of matched IQ.

We have made substantial progress in the discovery of genes, including DISC-1, associated with psychosis and have played a leading role in understanding how genetic variation alters brain structure and function and risk for mental illness.

Research methods

The principal methods used are state-of-the-art structural and functional imaging techniques and genetic studies. We are also involved in a number of clinical trials of novel therapeutic interventions.

Major conditions of interest

Our major interests (that straddle the disciplines of Neurology and Psychiatry) include:

  • Autism and learning disability (Andrew Stanfield)
  • Dementia prevention (Craig Ritchie)
  • Bipolar disorder and depression (Andrew McIntosh)
  • Schizophrenia (Stephen Lawrie, Mandy Johnstone)
  • Cognition and Behaviour (collaborations with the Centre for Cognitive Ageing and Cognitive Epidemiology
  • Centre for Cognitive Ageing and Cognitive Epidemiology

We are also closely involved in two philanthropically funded Specialist Centres of Excellence:

Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences

The Division of Psychiatry is a part of the Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences (CCBS) in the Edinburgh Medical School. CCBS integrates laboratory and clinical research to study the causes, consequences and treatment of major brain disorders.

Training and support

Postgraduate students are mentored and supported by at least two supervisors and receive long-term guidance from their thesis committee.

We offer a transferable skills programme and project-specific courses, including opportunities to become involved in science communication and public engagement. In addition, the Division provides clinical case demonstrations and specialist seminars.

Facilities

We offer well-characterised cohorts of patients and expertise in a wide variety of techniques to study biological aspects of psychiatric disorders.
