What is the Specialist Course in Psychiatry and Forensic Psychology?

The Specialist Course in Psychiatry and Forensic Psychology organized by UNINPSI in collaboration with the Postgraduate Institute for Mental Health (“Instituto de Postgrado en Salud Mental”, or IPSM, in Spanish), allows students to acquire the necessary skills to carry out expert work in an optimal fashion. Students will learn to conduct an expert interview with adults and minors, taking into account the area of specialization in which they practice: Criminal, Civil, Family, Labor, etc., and to assess the credibility of statements for the subsequent drafting of corresponding expert opinions .

In addition to the writing of reports, students will learn to defend them in court, thus acquiring the degree of self-confidence that this requires, thanks to the large number of practical hours, both in witnessing real trials, as well as supervised simulations by professionals in Psychiatry and Forensic Psychology, as well as Lawyers and Magistrates of recognized prestige. Within this practical orientation, the Specialist Course in Psychiatry and Forensic Psychology offers personalized attention through tutorials and close supervision of academic tasks and work carried out by students. Finally, it provides a multi-faceted and multi-disciplinary perspective, being open to Psychiatrists, Psychologists with health training and Forensic Doctors who wish to acquire specialized training for their usual practice and who consider this inter-disciplinary nature to be necessary and enriching.
