We offer two programmes 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, and then three years as a higher psychiatric trainee.
Having a Cambridge research degree can help you on your way to becoming a psychiatrist.
