The MIC is an 18-hour online on-demand introduction to core principles of assessment, formulation, diagnosis and feedback in child, adolescent and youth mental. It integrates the latest evidence on teaching and learning, and the expertise of experienced child and adolescent mental health workers, to create an engaging and interactive course that teaches both theory and skills. It can be completed at any time. It can be completed as a standalone or as the prerequisite for our Developmental Psychiatry Course.

The Developmental Psychiatry Course is a one-year course (1 day/week) for professionals who aim to develop their knowledge and skills in assessing children, adolescents, young people and families presenting with a variety of social, emotional, behavioural, and developmental difficulties. The course builds a foundational knowledge in normal and abnormal development across the developmental stages, and builds competency in assessment, diagnosis, formulation, and treatment planning. While not being a university award program (ie completion of the course does not lead to the award of a formal university degree or diploma), the course has been accepted for more than forty years as the benchmark for vocational training in fundamental skills for the child adolescent, and youth mental health field.

This two year full-time course is open only to Psychiatry and Paediatric Registrars or suitably qualified Psychiatrists. It comprises supervised clinical work, weekly seminar program, and supervision of child, adolescent, parent and family therapy.  Training is conducted on Tuesdays. Clinical experience is gained from placements at one of the metropolitan or regional child and adolescent mental health services. Also, there is some possibility of training in private child and adolescent mental health facilities.
