The MSc in Psychiatry at Cardiff University strives to provide a well-rounded masters-level postgraduate education to students from all backgrounds.
Psychiatry is an interesting and vital branch of medicine. Because of the nature of psychiatric illness (which is frequently present/co-morbid with other conditions and/or affects how people behave in a variety of situations), improved knowledge of Psychiatry would benefit professionals working in fields related to Psychiatry and/or likely to come into contact with psychiatric illness on a regular basis. The curriculum will help such individuals as well as medical practitioners pursuing a career as Psychiatrists or Psychiatric Specialists.
* A thorough understanding of the fundamental science, features, and presentation of psychiatric illness.
* An awareness of how psychiatric illness is addressed and the suitability of specific care plans.
* The ability to critically analyse, synthesise, and assess psychiatric illness studies.
* A growing critical independence and intellectual integrity with a focus on psychiatry.
The curriculum is a comprehensive and extensive introduction to the major types of psychiatric illness, but it does not grant anybody enrolled in or graduating from it the right to call themselves a Psychiatrist or Psychologist, to prescribe medicines, or to manage psychiatric illness in any other way (if they could not previously do so as specified by their specific registration or licence to practice).
