Extreme Psych challenges medical students to take a psychiatric history anywhere – no matter where their careers will one day take them.

Students can apply to join here and we are currently taking applications for the Autumn 2014 term. The deadline for applications will be published shortly.

If you are interested in joining as part of the team please sign up here. Please note that in order to be considered for the Autumn 2014 interviews, the deadline for applications for Peer Facilitators is 7 October 2014, and for Extreme Psychiatrists and Actors it is 30 September 2014.

The Extreme Psych team believe that mental health is everyone’s business, and all doctors should be confident and competent to work with the mind, no matter what they do to the body.

The more remote and hostile the territory, the better: orthopaedic wards, birthing pools and cardiac catheter labs are all fair game…
