Research in psychiatry
Research into the causes of and treatments for mental health disorders is an essential part of improving outcomes for those affected.
This section offers information to those wishing to undertake a research project, including trainees in the research component of their RANZCP Fellowship Program (the Scholarly Project) and psychiatrists who wish to engage in research.
The RANZCP also supports the research-related activities of psychiatrists and trainees by:
- offering grants, resources, and information to improve academic and research career prospects
- calling for adequate funding to support research and training initiatives
- encouraging research as an important activity for psychiatric training, to encourage an interest in research early on, noting that skills developed in this area are essential to deliver clinical psychiatry.
To help fund research-related activities, the RANZCP has a Research and Education Foundation, funded by donations from members of the RANZCP and the wider community.
