Teaching Psychiatry to Undergraduates

Psychiatry is one of the most rewarding, challenging and stimulating specialties in medicine – so why don’t more of our medical students choose psychiatry as their career? This book aims to nurture the inspirational teaching that will help bring the most talented doctors into the specialty.

The book contains advice on how to teach psychiatry to undergraduate medical students using a range of different methods in different settings. It addresses both the theory and practical aspects of teaching psychiatry to medical students. Various chapters focus on: giving a lecture; small-group teaching; clinical teaching; problem-based learning; and the use of simulated patients and role-play. There is also advice on involving trainees and service users in teaching and on teaching psychiatry internationally. The later chapters focus on issues relating to recruitment.

  • Essential guide to undergraduate teaching in psychiatry.
  • Practical and accessible approach.
  • Focus on personal development and well-being, as well as educational achievement.
