We offer two programs of research and study here at the Department of Psychiatry:
MPhil in Medical Sciences
Doctoral studies (PhD or MD)
Our research degrees do not qualify you to become a psychiatrist. To become a psychiatrist in the UK, you have to first of all qualify as a doctor at medical school. This is then followed by two foundation years (working in a range of specialities, including internal medicine and surgery), three years as a basic psychiatric trainee, then three years as a higher psychiatric trainee.
Having a Cambridge research degree can help you on your way to becoming a psychiatrist.

We invite you to the Cambridge Postgraduate Open Day. The day is open to all those seeking to apply for postgraduate study at the University. It will provide opportunities to meet department staff, explore the Colleges and find out more about the application process, research proposals and funding opportunities.
During the morning of the event, you will be able to tour the Colleges and speak with current postgraduate students to find out about student life in the vibrant city of Cambridge.
In the afternoon, you will have the chance to learn more about individual courses by talking to academic staff and by visiting departments.
On the day a central Exhibition Hub will provide detailed information about the application process, with our Graduate Admissions Office staff on hand to answer your questions. There will also be opportunities to talk to department staff and postgraduate students to find out more about the postgraduate courses we offer.
