Welcome to psychiatry, a medical speciality with a strong scientific basis.
The Discipline is involved in teaching and research and works with clinical services, partner hospitals and clinical colleagues with part-time academic appointments.
Our undergraduate teaching is to medical students and we offer postgraduate courses in psychological therapies and in biological aspects of psychiatry. Our core research activity is in Clinical and Molecular Neurosciences, especially Neuropsychiatric Genetics and Neuroimaging, working closely with the TCD Institutes of Molecular Medicine and Neurosciences.
