Psychological Medicine

The Department of Psychological Medicine is the largest department of child mental health in NSW and supports a progressively expanding research base. Clinicians in Psychological Medicine are encouraged to maintain an area of research interest. The strength of the research is the close interface with clinicians and clinical need.

There are a variety of active research projects underway in the Department which encompass several topic areas. The key areas of research are Eating Disorders, Somatoform Disorders, Child Protection, Developmental Psychiatry, Anxiety Disorders, Early-Onset Psychosis, Deafness, Liver Transplant and Molecular Psychiatry.

We are affiliated with the University of Sydney through the Disciplines of Psychological Medicine, Paediatrics and Child Health and the School of Psychology. Research collaborations also exist with other health and allied health departments within and outside The Children’s Hospital at Westmead.
