New Postgraduate Programs for 2017
The New South Wales Institute of Psychiatry (NSWIOP) has redesigned its courses into two new exciting frameworks of Applied Mental Health Studies and Psychiatric Medicine. This has been part of the staged transition of the NSWIOP to the Health Education and Training Institute (HETI) as the Mental Health Portfolio. This transition was completed in January 2017.
HETI was formally registered by the Commonwealth regulator, the Tertiary Education Quality Standards Agency (TEQSA), as a higher education provider on 27 October 2016. The two new mental health programs of Applied Mental Health Studies and Psychiatric Medicine have also been accredited by TEQSA and HETI is now accepting applications for study in 2017.
Applied Mental Health Studies
The demand for contemporary, effective and quality education in mental health is ever growing and the health workforce increasingly needs to be supported to adapt to sector changes. The new Applied Mental Health Studies program has been designed to incorporate forward thinking, contemporary learning practice with enhanced application to the workplace.
Our contemporary Psychiatric Medicine higher education program has been designed to meet the needs of Psychiatrists, General Practitioners and Rural and Remote Medicine Specialists. Developed in liaison with leading practitioners, educational experts, professional Colleges and people with lived experience of mental illness, the course will offer students the opportunity to apply the latest knowledge and perspectives to their respective practice areas.
