The Clinical Psychiatry (Online Delivery) offered by University of South Wales will ensure you’re up to date with new classifications, treatments and assessments that integrate psychological and social sciences, and develop your understanding of how the Mental Health Act and the Capacity Acts influence delivery of services. 

You will also learn plus how the field links to acute medicine, surgery, perinatal services, children’s services and primary care.

Teaching

Although you’ll be learning entirely online, you will be part of a group with 10 to 15 other students - to share ideas, debate scenarios and develop best practice with.
