Improving communication skills and confidence in psychiatry


Extreme Psychiatry is on a break at the moment.

We’ll be back soon. In the meantime, why not follow us on Twitter?

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

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…

Follow ExtremePsych on Twitter for a mixture of musings, psych insights and course updates.
