Psychiatric Training Scheme

Al Rashid Hospital and Centre offers a training program for psychiatrists to specialize, and also become certified by the Jordanian Board of Psychiatry.  This scheme is approved by the Jordan Medical Council and the Arab Board of psychiatrists.

At Al Rashid Hospital and Centre, eight trainees of Jordanian and other Arab nationalities are enrolled in this training program (residents in psychiatry). Residents sit for annual exams, and move on to the next level if they successfully pass these exams.  After completing four successful years, the resident will be eligible as a psychiatry resident. 

Medical students from Jordan University are provided with supervised training at Al Rashid Hospital, where they assess patients under supervision.

Postgraduate, as well as undergraduate nurses from various Jordanian universities are trained at the hospital.  Psychologists from private Jordanian Universities also undergo bulk of their training at the hospital.
