Section editor and contributing author, Professor Michael Sharpe, Department of Psychiatry, said,


The inclusion of such comprehensive and high quality articles on psychiatry in a world leading general medical textbook is important in achieving better psychiatric care for medical patients. It also enhances the profile of psychiatry amongst our colleagues working in other medical specialities.Professor Michael Sharpe.


The Department of Psychiatry at the University of Oxford conducts world-class research, promotes excellence in clinical practice, develops and provides innovative clinical services, and teaches psychiatry. A number of department members are authors of some of the 25 chapters in this 6th edition alongside colleagues working in the NHS.

Section 26 - Psychiatry supplements and references the recently published Oxford Textbook of Psychiatry (3rd edition).




The Oxford Textbook of Medicine is recognised around the world as the trusted and ultimate reference to the whole of medicine.
