Training in Psychiatry for Developing Countries (with special reference to Africa)

  • John L. Cox (a1)
Extract

It was bold, as well as shrewd, to have held the 4th Conference of the African Psychiatry Association in London (Institute of Psychiatry) rather than Lagos or Lusaka. Yet Dr A. C. Raman (Consultant, St Augustine's Hospital and Secretary General of the Association) should be well satisfied with the rewards for his hard work. There were about 100 participants (the majority from Africa) who debated with vigour and courtesy the diverse facets of the conference theme. To have discussed these controversial training matters at the institution which, together with the department of psychiatry in Edinburgh, had influenced considerably the development of psychiatry in Nigeria, as well as in other Anglophone African countries, could have misfired. However, for most participants the conference presented a rare opportunity for legitimate nostalgia, as well as the chance to contribute to discussion on the present training of psychiatrists in Africa.
