For students in year 10-11, our ‘Being a Psychiatrist’ presentation provides a more detailed look at the field of psychiatry, what psychiatrists do, the skills you’ll need to work as a psychiatrist, and an age-appropriate case study to get students involved in thinking about psychiatric presentations, diagnosis and management.   

Talking to sixth form students (Year 12-13)

If you’re planning a talk for sixth form students (year 12-13) we have a presentation for each of the main specialties in psychiatry so you can choose one to match the specialty you work in, or are most passionate about! Each presentation gives an overview of psychiatry, the differences between psychiatry and psychology, the skills needed to be a psychiatrist and then a deeper dive into each specialty and a specialty-specific interactive case study.
