It is an integral part of the continuum of medical education that begins with the undergraduate program, extends through postgraduate programs and continues through life-long learning activities for licensed physicians.

University Grand Rounds and Culture and Psychiatry are two initiatives that the Department has implemented to provide further education on topics surrounding psychiatry. Below you will find information on each initiative

Culture and Psychiatry

Cultural Psychiatry is concerned with understanding the cultural context of mental disorders, health equity and cultural competence in services with diverse populations including migrants, ethnocultural/racialized populations and indigenous persons. The Culture and Psychiatry Initiative aims to provide a forum for resident and continuing education, inform curriculum design and explore research opportunities. It hopes to develop new partnerships with departmental programs, divisions, community members and agencies and serve as a resource for culturally informed mental health practice.
