This course will be available to study remotely for students commencing in Semester 1, 2021. Please note that some units of study that are not essential to completing the degree may not be available to be studied remotely.

Note: The University intends to offer as many units of study as possible in a remote as well as face-to-face learning method of delivery in Semester 1, 2021 and subject to ongoing border closures and public health orders impacting attendance on campus, in Semester 2, 2021.

About this course

The Master of Medicine (Psychiatry) will help you to develop a sophisticated understanding of the neuroscientific basis of psychiatry, gain expertise in critical appraisal and research design, strengthen your clinical capability, develop interdisciplinary clinical and research networks, and pursue research.

Psychiatrists provide a wide range of evidence-based and effective treatments, and work in multidisciplinary teams. There are many opportunities throughout this field for innovation, research, advocacy and leadership.

As a psychiatry student, you will learn from leading experts how to translate research into clinical practice and develop interdisciplinary clinical and research networks. We promote engaged enquiry and active problem solving, helping you to gain expertise in critical appraisal and research design.

Run by the University of Sydney's Brain and Mind Centre, an industry leader in the investigation and treatment of diseases of the brain and mind, this degree is taught part-time over three years. Facilitated by experienced clinicians and academics, classes are presented weekly, with face-to-face teaching supported by online learning. If you are not based in Sydney or if you are working evening or night shifts, you can join the class online or view class recordings later.

The Master of Medicine (Psychiatry) is accredited by the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists (RANZCP) as a formal education course mandated for the first three years of the five-year RANZCP training program.

Who should do this degree?

This master's degree is ideal for trainees in psychiatry who are looking for an accredited formal education course, or current psychiatrists who wish to upgrade their knowledge and skills.

This course also suits overseas-trained psychiatrists and CMOs in psychiatry who would have a broader range of subjects available to them as they would not need to adhere to the formal education course requirements.

Commonwealth Supported Places (CSP) are available for this course for eligible domestic students. This means that your course fees are subsidised by the Australian Government and you pay a student contribution amount (SCA). CSP places are limited in number and are allocated based on academic merit.
