Welcome to the Department of Psychiatry at Queen's University
We are proud to offer a diverse, innovative and vibrant environment to help our faculty succeed in their clinical, research, and educational deliverables and achieve their full potential . Our vision is to be a transformative force and help shape the way mental wellness is promoted, and how mental illness is diagnosed, treated or even prevented.
Why Work With Us
Psychiatry is one of the largest clinical departments at Queen’s School of Medicine; yet, it is comprised by a cohesive group of clinicians, educators and researchers – all committed to provide outstanding mental health services, deliver excellence in education, and generate innovative research.
We are uniquely positioned as the only academic centre in the region, which has allowed us to foster fruitful partnerships with teaching-affiliated hospitals, University-based institutions and centres such as the Centre for Neurosciences Studies.
Experience Life in Kingston
Nicknamed the Limestone City because of the captivating heritage buildings constructed from local limestone, Kingston is both “quaint” and “eclectic”. The city is large enough to provide all the conveniences of modern life, and small enough to feel instantly comfortable. Located along the beautiful shores of Lake Ontario, the city has an active downtown core offering a variety of events and entertainment, independent shops and superb restaurants.
