Forensic Psychiatry

2 posts in this topic

I did 8 weeks of Forensic Psychiatry as an undergraduate and was highly impressed by it's discipline, funding and the exceptionally high standard of doctors working in the field. Very quickly, I realised that having well polished written and verbal skills was a necessity as well as the ability to take the lead in an MD team. I'll admit, I was sold and would like to ask where I can get the most exposure to Forensics as an SHO......?

dear Irfan,

forensic psychiatry as a SHO may be difficult to obtain unless you are in a Psychiatry rotation and even in that rotation,you may have to wait your turn to get that posting depending on the number of SHOs and also your seniority.

i have finished my membership exams but still haven't got the chance to work in forensic psychiatry.many of my colleagues who finished the rotation didn't get to do forensics.so there are rhe facts.its a career decision.do it carefully.

best wishes and happy new year
