Goals:

  • To train medical students in basic psychiatry with teaching both didactic as well as practical
  • To train DPM and MD Psychiatry students

Objectives:

To help the students become excellent clinicians with a core biopsychosocial approach to
diagnosis and treatment

Head of Department’s message:

Psychiatry is an emerging specialty. It is scientific, humane and can potentially change lives positively. There is no other specialty in which the biopsychosocial perspective so emphasized upon as much, for the purpose of a holistic assessment. We hope to train the undergraduates and interns in basic skills in psychiatry, and we believe that this basic training at the
undergraduate/intern level will impart a qualitative difference to the practice of medicine irrespective of the branch chosen by the students for their postgraduate training.
As a postgraduate pursuing training for DPM and MD (Psychiatry) our students will receive intensive training to prepare them for their roles clinicians, teachers and researchers in the field.
