Program Information
Faculty: School of Medicine
Degree: Not Applicable
Field of Study: Psychiatry
Description The post-graduate program for physicians wishing to specialize in psychiatry was developed in 1957. Since the program's first resident met the Royal College requirements for psychiatry, many of its graduates have made significant contributions to this field of medicine provincially, nationally and internationally. Today, this program develops both academic and non-academic psychiatrists with skills sensitive and responsive to contemporary patterns of practice. It provides training in an atmosphere of close personal and working relationships among some 18 residents and faculty. Two general hospitals and a provincial psychiatric hospital, situated in close proximity, form the institutional basis which links the academic department at Queen's. Together, these present the resident with an opportunity for the development of contemporary and relevant skills and a context for understanding the contributions of psychiatry in a spectrum of mental health services.
