Within the Department, our members are committed to excellence in inter-professional educational scholarship across the continuum, spanning undergraduate, postgraduate and continuing education domains. We have a strong track record of enhancing the knowledge and skills of health professionals utilizing a competency-based approach. Our unique strengths derive from a foundation and love of teaching within our faculty, many of whom were attracted to the department by the creative and innovative culture of education fostered by the medical school.
Research in the Department of Psychiatry and Neuroscience is focused broadly on increasing our understanding of factors leading to the onset and maintenance of mental illnesses and addiction, as well as the development and evaluation of new assessment methods and treatment approaches. The overall goal of this research is to improve quality of life and treatment outcomes in individuals struggling with mental illness and addiction. Our research mission is driven by our strategic aims to improve detection, access and transitions, to integrate psychiatry across medicine and healthcare and to advance person- and family-centred care.
