This multidisciplinary Masters course in Biological Psychiatry explores the relationship between basic principles, biological factors and clinical features in mental health disorders, allowing students to translate scientific understanding into effective clinical practice. It is aimed primarily at graduates with a background in psychiatry (or related health care disciplines), psychology, biological or social sciences, who wish to develop their research skills and broaden their research interests. The course will aid in equipping participants with the skills to progress into a career in psychiatry and psychiatric research or to embark on a doctoral programme.
The following six modules (10 ECTS each) are mandatory, and make up the taught component of the course (60 ECTS): Statistics and Research Methodology; Clinical Neuropsychology and Cognitive Genomics; Neuroimaging and Biomarkers; Molecular Neuroscience; Neuropsychiatric Genetics; Molecular Psychiatry. In addition, in their second year students will be required to submit a dissertation (30 ECTS) based on an empirical research project conducted in one of the many research groups located within the Dept of Psychiatry.
Applicants should normally hold a relevant first degree (e.g. Medicine, Psychology, Biological Sciences) with at least 2nd class honours or equivalent professional qualification (e.g. MB degree) and have at least one years relevant work experience in mental health. The course will be run in the Trinity Centre for Health Sciences, St. James Hospital, Dublin 8.
