MD Psychiatry

MD Psychiatry

MD Psychiatry specialists not only acquire essential core knowledge and skills in psychiatry, but also lay a foundation in psychotherapy skill and the practice of evidence-based medicine. PG programs in Psychiatry usually serve a broad mix of patients and offers the trainees their primary experience with managed care inpatients. Trainees also practice patient evaluations in outpatient clinics and on the consultation/liaison service at affiliated hospital of the college offering the program.

The program provides opportunities for more independence in the care of acutely ill psychiatric patients. The postgrad trainees work more autonomously in inpatient, hospital consultation/liaison and emergency room settings, solidifying skills and building self-confidence. The clinical settings exposed includes inpatient psychiatry, consultation/liaison psychiatry, inpatient geropsychiatry, emergency room the teaching Hospital, child psychiatry at Child Psychiatric Facility, addiction psychiatry.

The postgrad trainees learn basic concepts of modern psychotherapy and the theoretical and practical context for the understanding of psychodynamic psychotherapy. Trainees read and discuss current cases towards the goal of integrating descriptive, biological, and psychodynamic approaches to the treatment of mental disorders. The didactics includes essential topics in psychiatry, including neurobiology, diagnosis, phenomenology and psychopathology, epidemiology, psychiatric diagnosis, psychopharmacology and therapeutics of major psychiatric disorders.

The postgraduate training programs brings new challenges associated with more independent clinical work and higher expectations for self-directed learning. Trainees grapple with such issues as the inequalities in mental health service delivery, the relapses and recurrences of mental illness seen in their patients over time, and the effect of their own countertransference reactions on their patients. Understanding and managing individuals in complex systems, beginning with families, adds a new level of sophistication to trainees’ clinical framework. Trainees are challenged to demonstrate a higher level of clinical decision-making and to cultivate their critical reading skills.

The programs also introduce the basic principles and methods of cognitive and behavioral therapies, with emphasis on practical skill development in the application of CBT to anxiety disorders, sexual disorders, eating disorders, depression and borderline personality disorder. Review of core topics in psychopharmacology as well as special topics, such as ECT, pediatric and geriatric psychopharmacology, gender and ethnic aspects of drug treatments, treatment of the medically ill, and substance abuse disorders are also included. Critical appraisal of the evidence for a wide range of treatment modalities, including pharmacological therapy, cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy and psychodynamically-based psychotherapy for children and adolescents.

The program is completed with the consolidation, specialization and the development of leadership and teaching skills. After any remaining requirements are met in either outpatient child and adolescent psychiatry or community psychiatry, trainees are free to choose from a broad range of electives.
