Thanks Gaurav for raising your query.

From your question, it is not clear what kind of course in Psychiatry you would like to pursue. In order to address your query, I divide you concerns into two categories. First, Psychiatry courses and its eligibility and Second, Top institutes for the study of Psychiatry in India.

Psychiatry courses and its eligibility in India

To go for a course in psychiatry an MBBS degree is required. I am sure you know two level of courses in Psychiatry after completing MBBS. After that you can either go for a three year MD course or a two year diploma in psychiatry. All these courses include some practical counseling and treatment experience at some psychiatric hospital.
National Board of Examinations - DNB course
Central Institute of Psychiatry (CIP) entrance exam
All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) entrance Exam
National Institute of Mental Health and Neuro Sciences (NIMHANS) Psychiatry Entrance Exam
Entrance exams of the Institute of Human Behavior and Allied Sciences (IHBAS)
All India Institute of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (AIIPMR)

Top Institutes for the Study of Psychiatry in India are as follow:

  • National Institute of Mental Health Neuro-Science (NIMHANS), Bangalore
  • Bangalore Institute Of Human Behavior And Allied Sciences (IHBAS), Delhi
  • Central Institute of Psychiatry (CIP), Ranchi
  • All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi
  • Baroda Medical College, The Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda
  • BJ Medical College, Ahmedabad
  • All India Institute of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Mumbai
  • Lady Hardinge Medical College New Delhi

Hope I have answered your queries. If you have any query, feel free to talk with me.

My Best Wishes, Apurva

Hello There,

Interesting that you wish to get into the Mental Health profession.

Hope that you are aware that a psychiatrists is a Medical doctor, who is responsible for the rehabilitation of Mentally disturbed patients as well as less severely disturbed groups.
They mainly treat with the help of medications as they are doctors and through Therapies.

To be eligible for a Psychiatry course, a student must be 12th Science preferably PCB combination.
After 12th, they would have to appear for the medical entrance exam, like

  • Central Institute of Psychiatry (CIP) entrance exam
  • All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) entrance Exam
  • All India Institute of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (AIIPMR)

Once the exams are cleared, they would be eligible for a 5 1/2 years medical course. After Graduating, at the post-graduating level one can opt for Psychiatry.
Thinking about Psychiatry, one institute that is always spoken is NIMHANS

Still listed below are some if the Institutes well known for a course in Psychiatry:
- Central Institute of Psychiatry. http://cipranchi.nic.in/
