The training programme endeavours to give a general and comprehensive exposure to psychiatry. General objective of the training programme is to enable the candidate to acquire knowledge, skills and desirable attitudes in the principles and practice of psychiatry and gain a particular proficiency in the widely accepted theories and techniques.

For this reason they are extensively exposed to other services, answering family physician's referral letters, being administrative in-charge of out-patient and in-patient units and, taking part in monthly administrative meetings etc.
