Course content

The Department of Psychological Medicine at King's College London is the largest department in the Institute of Psychiatry Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN). It currently has around 20 full-time academics and a total of approximately 100 members of staff. The department has approximately 50 doctoral students.

The large number of staff and students in the Department provides an environment which is very beneficial to research students because:

  • of the research and clinical expertise available
  • of the structures which are in place to help students achieve their goals
  • of the collegiality and support that is afforded by having other young researchers going through the same experience.


The Head of the Department is Professor Ulrike Schmidt, Professor of Eating Disorders.

The department is research-led but in addition, has a broad teaching and clinical remit. The mental health problems of particular interest are those of the common mental disorders, such as anxiety, depression, eating disorders, liaison psychiatry, military mental health, perinatal psychiatry, and stress related disorders.
