Psychiatric specialty placements
I would recommend St Andrew’s to anyone; my elective has helped me to reflect on psychiatric diagnosis and treatment.
Our aim is to provide you with the best learning opportunity throughout your professional psychiatric specialty training.
We offer high quality mentoring and support that is aligned to your learning requirements and objectives.
We hold monthly student drop-in sessions for training providers to discuss the quality of placements with us.

- Adult forensic psychiatry - Men's Mental Health
