Psychiatrist

Psychiatry could be the career path for you if you have a strong scientific mind, excellent communication skills and the desire to improve the lives of people living with mental illness

Psychiatrists are medically qualified doctors specialising in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with mental health disorders, such as:

  • dementia
  • depression
  • bipolar disorder
  • eating disorders
  • schizophrenia.

Psychiatric disorders can be caused by physical illnesses, and many patients with mental illness are at greater risk of physical illness. Because of this, psychiatrists are skilled in recognising mind and body symptoms to evaluate and assess risk and draw up treatment plans, which may include prescribing medication.
