Training for psychiatry registrars
Psychiatric Registrar Rotational Position
Originating from an existing partnership with St Vincent’s Mental Health service, an advanced psychiatry registrar training position was introduced at VTMH in 2011. Currently offered as a one year or six month rotation, the VTMH psychiatry registrar splits learning and practice between VTMH and The Victorian Foundation for Survivors of Torture and Trauma (Foundation House). The rotation allows registrars to gain skills in psychotherapy with refugees, general adult outpatient transcultural psychiatry, to undertake research opportunities, and to engage in Education and Service Development initiatives with external mental health services.
