Summary of "Psychiatric education in Greater China."

Multiple surveys have revealed that China has an immense mental health care needs predominantly related to common mental disorders like anxiety and depressive disorders. China has provided different training pathways with an aim of increasing the number of psychiatrists working to address such growing mental health care needs. Although this strategy has successfully doubled the total number of psychiatrists over a couple of years, there remains the problem of harmonising the training standards across different training pathways and across different training units. There is also a pressing need to enhance psychiatric education among other health professionals as it is increasingly recognised that many people with common mental disorders do not have or want to have access to psychiatric care, and need to be taken care of by medical practitioners of other specialties or health professionals. Despite Hong Kong having a different training system from Mainland China, the problems faced with training psychiatrists and other health professionals in Hong Kong are strikingly similar to those encountered by their counterparts in China. Given their different historical origins and subsequent diverse development of training systems, Mainland China and Hong Kong have much to learn from one another.
