Studying Psychiatry in Canada
The graduate program provides advanced training and research in the basic, applied, and social sciences relevant to psychiatry. Advanced courses such as addictions, brain evolution, mental health services and policy, forensic psychiatry, and trends in clinical psychiatry are offered. Directed studies allow the student to pursue a topic of their own choosing, and departmental seminars on recent advances in psychiatry, methodology, and policy are available.
The MD program in psychiatry is generally a four-year program, with the first year including foundation courses in psychiatry. Future years focus on the brain and neurological behavior, with the final years spent in rotation learning practical skills (such as taking a case history), and the taking of electives (eg. focusing on a special topic such as pediatric psychiatry, sexual medicine, addictions, and geriatric psychiatry). Students learn applicable basic sciences, clinical skills, clinical diagnostic reasoning, and clinical therapeutic reasoning. Unlike other medical doctors, psychiatrists specialize in the doctor-patient relationship and are trained in the use of psychotherapy and other therapeutic communication techniques.
