      With the need to improve the delivery of psychiatric care to a broader cross section of the community, the renowned Master of Psychiatry course is now being offered online using the latest technology and interactive learning platforms.

      Delivered by the Department of Psychiatry and fully accredited by the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists (RANZCP), students will be encouraged to explore the latest cutting-edge theoretical concepts in psychiatry and their relationship to clinical practice. You will also develop a broad understanding of the cultural and sociocultural differences that exist in our community and geographical region and their relationship to individuals and mental illness.

      If you are a medical practitioner who is looking for the opportunity to advance your psychiatry knowledge, skills and career in psychiatry, this course is for you.

      Course aims

      This course is designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of the core and specialties of psychiatry in order to provide outstanding clinical care to patients.

      The online learning experience is engaging and authentic and you will learn from the same leading academics and researchers who teach the on-campus courses.

      This course will also provide you with a much more wholistic, less traditional view of the field. You will explore the principles of hope, recovery and quality of life by hearing directly from patients suffering from mental health issues, and through the use of authentic case scenarios that emulate the clinical experience.
