Overall aims specific to teaching psychiatry are;
1. To provide students with knowledge of psychopathology, the main psychiatric disorders, commonly used treatment methods and the
    basis on which to continue to develop this knowledge.
2. Assist students to develop the necessary skills to apply this knowledge in clinical situations
