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

The Head of School is Dr Ian Collings 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 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.

3 trainees from the School of Psychiatry were named as winners at the 2017 Wales Deanery BEST Trainee Awards:

Outstanding contribution outside of the training programme (i.e.. charity) - Dr Kathryn Speedy, CT3 

Outstanding contribution to leadership - Dr Sarah Fitch, CT3
