Further Education

The Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy at the Uniklinik RWTH Aachen offers a wealth of opportunities for further education and advanced training and a wide range of courses and lectures for doctors, psychologists and nursing staff who wish to further their education in areas relating to psychiatric care.

Doctors will find more information on advanced training for doctors wishing to specialize in psychiatry and psychotherapy. The department offers the entire curriculum for doctors training for this specialization, including the supervision of psychotherapy treatment, the Balint Group and self-awareness groups based on behavioral therapy.

Junior psychologists (PiP) have the opportunity to acquire practical experience in all areas of the Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy during their residencies. Due to the department's behavioral therapy orientation, residencies are offered only to applicants from institutions offering training in behavioral therapy.

Advanced training seminars on psychiatric care are also held regularly, giving interested doctors, nursing staff and other professionals working in the Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy the opportunity to deepen their knowledge of specific issues and topics within the field.
