The Department of Psychological Medicine, established in September 1979, provides quality outpatient and inpatient psychiatric clinical care. We also work with and train our community partners in primary mental health. We offer a full suite of services for the young, adult and elderly populations. Our academic research faculty and clinicians work to advance the vision of the hospital, as well as that of the NUS Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, of which we are a part. We provide psychiatric teaching and training for undergraduate and post-graduate students and place a strong emphasis on clinical, research and educational excellence as an important means of advancing knowledge in the field.
