The Centre and Discipline of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Psychosomatics and Psychotherapy provides in-depth teaching about Child and Adolescent Mental Health to UWA medical students, and operates an international exchange program at RWTH Aachen University in Germany.
The Centre has an international exchange program with the Clinic for Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Psychosomatics and Psychotherapy at RWTH Aachen University in Germany for medical students (usually in their final year of study, in Germany this is called the final practical year, or PJ; 'Praktisches Jahr').
Within this exchange program, German medical students with sufficient English language skills can undertake rotations in the field of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Psychosomatics and Psychotherapy (duration 8 or 16 weeks). Duration of the elective is a matter of negotiation and available spaces.
Australian medical students with sufficient German language skills can also take such an elective in Germany at the above-mentioned clinic.
