We deliver world-leading mental health research and outstanding patient care.
We work in partnership with the NHS Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Foundation Trust and the Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Trust to deliver clinical services. Our head of department is Professor Ed Bullmore.
Our research on mental health and well-being spans the entire life course.
From early childhood conditions, such as autism spectrum disorders, behavioral disorders, and learning difficulties. To misunderstood psychotic disorders, anxiety and depression, and PTSD. To the memory-stealing diseases of old age, such as Alzheimer’s disease.
We are committed to high-quality graduate and clinical teaching, and research.
We offer two programs of research and study here at the Department of Psychiatry— MPhil in Medical Sciences and doctoral studies (PhD or MD).
