Learn from the best minds in psychiatry to embark on a successful career.

I was attracted to psychiatry because of its diversity and because you have an opportunity to get to know your patients much better than in many other specialties. Because mental illness is a complex condition that affects different aspects of our lives, including physical health, we work with the whole person rather than one particular body system. And there’s also a lot going on in terms of research, which really appealed to me. Studying the Master of Psychiatry at Melbourne gives you access to international experts across a broad range of topics, and the opportunity engage with leaders in the field. It also means there is a great range of mentors and research supervisors available, who are actively involved in current research.  Another really useful aspect of the course is that it is mostly entirely taught by psychiatrists, which makes the entire content highly relevant to clinical practice. The electives also give you the flexibility to dig deeper into your specific interests.
