Abstract: Psychiatry was largely a forgotten discipline in the first 75 years of the medical school. In the last 2 decades, there has been steady progress in the extension of teaching time and clinical postings. The focus of psychiatric education has shifted from the mental institution to the general hospital and primary care. Psychiatric teaching emphasises not just clinical skills, but also, the importance of communication skills in the doctor-patient relationship.
