The vision of Department of Psychiatry is to become the center of psychiatric education competitive at national and international level, and to offer programs to support the development of psychiatric knowledge, research and community services in 2020. Currently the department is developing strategies to improve the image and achievement in education, research and community services through providing facilities and capacity building programs for human resources. Three staff members (dr Mahar, dr Carla and dr Ronny) were trained at the Department of Global Health and Social Medicine Harvard Medical School, US to learn about social medicine working with Prof Byron Good and Prof Mary-Jo Good.
Staff members in our department hold several subspecialties, such as Community/Social/Culture Psychiatry, Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Biology Psychiatry, Forensic Psychiatry, Geriatric Psychiatry, Addiction and Substance Abuse, Psychotherapy, and CLP (Consultation Liaison Psychiatry).
