Our department was founded in 1979 and we have a lasting tradition of educational excellence, in training and nurturing the finest clinicians in mental health. Our strengths are in academic psychiatry, which includes depression, mood disorders, ageing psychiatry, dementia, child and adolescent psychiatry and medical consultation psychiatry.

We hope to foster research and academic psychiatric training in the treatment and care for mental health around the world. We believe that education and research excellence would create the best clinical practice for our patients.
