HETI – Mental Health Higher Education and Training in Psychiatric Medicine
PROVIDER: Health Education and Training Institute (HETI)
The NSW Institute Of Psychiatry has redesigned its former mental health higher education programs into two new contemporary higher education frameworks, commencing in February 2017. The frameworks of Psychiatric Medicine and Applied Mental Health Studies are cutting edge and will enable mental health practitioner students to study in inter-professional courses, with grounded application to their varied areas of mental health practice.
The Psychiatric Medicine Framework provides an innovative approach to general practitioner mental health education as this course has been developed to provide learning pathways for medical practitioners in their respective fields.
The Psychiatric Medicine Framework facilitates inter-professional collaboration and offers students the opportunity to study alongside and learn from other medical specialists. This includes:
- General Practitioners
- Psychiatry Trainees
- Rural and Remote Medicine Specialists
While the Psychiatric Medicine course is designed to meet the Stage 1 and 2 course requirements of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College Psychiatrists (RANZCP) for psychiatry trainees, all teaching and learning assessments are focused on application to respective medical practice. The developed therapeutic electives will ensure that the learning needs of General Practitioners and Rural and Remote Medicine Specialists are similarly met. The learning pathways for General Practitioners and for Rural and Remote Medicine Specialists have been designed in consultation with the Royal Australian College General Practitioners (RANZCP) and with the Australian College Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM) and with reference to their curricula.
There are scholarships available for NSW based general practitioners to support their study in Psychiatric Medicine. Information on these opportunities are found here.
HETI has recently been registered as a higher education provider by the national regulatory body that oversights higher education, the Tertiary Education Quality Standards Agency (TEQSA). This achievement was made possible by the transition of NSW Institute of Psychiatry (NSWIOP) to become a Mental Health Portfolio of HETI. This transition is expected to be completed by 1 January 2017. It is a first in Australia for a state health entity to be registered and has some significant opportunities for developing learning pathways for the health workforce.

TIME: 6pm – 7.30pm
VENUE: Black Dog Institute, Randwick, NSW 2031
In recent years, mental health practice has been shifting from a deficits-based model of symptom reduction to a strengths-based model of care and recovery. Within this shift has been the contributions of positive psychology and other third wave approaches in the form of ‘values’ in treatment. Identifying what matters most to individuals and having corresponding elements of care aligned with personal core values is emerging as a key element of the strengths-based approach.
