School of Psychiatry

The School of Psychiatry is committed to ensuring that Wales offers high quality, curriculum-driven, a sustainable training programme with the aim of producing psychiatrists of the highest calibre who will deliver the best possible care for their patients.

The Interim Head of School is Dr Paul Emmerson and he is supported by the Specialty Training Committee.

Psychiatrists enjoy a combination of intellectual challenge and the opportunity to really understand the 'whole patient'. With opportunities to pursue interests in areas such as child, adult, old age psychiatry and supporting learning disability or rehabilitation, this specialty offers a diversity of practice across a broad range of clinical and community settings.

Trainees in Wales benefit from exceptionally supportive peer and professional relationships and high standards of teamwork.
