Doctors and mental health practitioners will learn the necessary skills to function in a modern clinical environment specialising in caring for the patient affected by psychopathology.

Mind and body function together, and psychological medicine looks at the fascinating interface between medicine and mental health. This course aims to inform and equip the doctor and mental health practitioner with the necessary skills to function in a modern clinical environment specialising in caring for the patient affected by psychopathology – organic and psychological – and will be relevant to day-to-day NHS hospital practice and general practice.

The Institute of Medicine was founded in 2014 and works closely with the NHS to innovate new postgraduate medical courses at Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctoral levels to push forward the boundaries of medical education and research in Cheshire and Shropshire.
