The Postgraduate Diploma in Mental Health programme 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.
Topics will include current models of mental disorder, the major categories of mental illness, psychological and physical methods of treatment.
Clinical training forms a major component of the course. Each postgraduate student should have a Clinical Tutor at his/her base Hospital. Regular clinical supervision should be provided by Consultants and the Tutor should ensure that training is provided in Interviewing Skills and Psychiatric Assessment.
Regular attendance at Hospital Case Conferences and Academic Meetings is expected. The Clinical Tutor should monitor all aspects of Hospital based training and provide a final report on clinical competence.
The clinical attachment in Psychiatry must overlap with the Academic Year of the programme of seminars attended.
Applicants must possess a recognised medical degree and be registered with the General Medical Council (UK or Ireland). Enrolled students will be required to be in clinical posts recognised for General Professional Training for Psychiatry for at least four months.
