Graduate Studies (MSc and PhD)

The Department of Psychiatry offers outstanding opportunities for students wishing to pursue graduate studies at the Master’s and Doctoral level. Applicants are admitted from a wide range of backgrounds, including undergraduate degrees in relevant areas of biochemistry, neuroscience, psychology, or medicine. The graduate program does not provide clinical training but advanced research training in the basic and applied sciences relevant to aspects of psychiatry. The MSc/PhD program is offered part-time and full-time.  We encourage you to investigate the research interests of our faculty members who offer graduate training.
