Delivered over three years part time, the Master of Psychiatry is designed for qualified medical practitioners with an interest in treating patients with mental illness.

This course will encourage you to explore theoretical concepts in psychiatry and their relationship to clinical practice. It will also provide you with a broad understanding of the cultural and sociocultural differences that exist in our community and geographical region and their relationship to individuals and mental illness.

When you study online with the University of Melbourne, you can study while working and training in this field. That means you can advance your medical career from wherever you happen to be. You will study the exact same course content as the renowned on-campus version, powered by the latest technology. Your teachers will be the same highly regarded psychiatric clinical leaders as the on-campus course. And you will join a community of high-calibre students with strong backgrounds in medicine and have opportunities to share ideas and collaborate together. Please note, there is an offline assessment component.
