Mater's Neuropsychiatry Certificate is an Australian-first program, designed to support psychiatry registrars, neurology registrars, junior psychiatrists and junior neurologists, to effectively assess and manage neuropsychiatric disorders.
As a collaborative between Mater's Center for Neuroscience and Department of Psychiatry, and Mater Education, the six-month program provides participants with the opportunity to:
- attend supervised treatments and management of patients with neuropsychiatric disorders,
- participate in a range of specialist case planning meetings and research events, and
- present a case study and current evidence pertaining to neuropsychiatry texts and current journal articles as part of their learning.
Participants will receive first-hand exposure to neuropsychiatric disorders including Parkinson’s, Functional Neurological Disorder (FND), Epilepsy and Cognitive Impairment, with supervision and endorsement by the treating neurologist or psychiatrist.
Endorsed by the Queensland Neuropsychiatry Section of RANZCP, certification provides access to:
- Professional networks and discussion forums
- Networking opportunities within research and education
- Contact with specialty neurologists and psychiatrists.
