Emerging challenges to mental wellbeing highlighted by the global pandemic, threaten to overwhelm healthcare systems with complex mental illnesses, and challenges of appropriate staffing, culturally sensitive training and funding to respond to an increasingly troubling world. This raises some fundamental questions to our practice, as we move towards sustainable and personalised care: Can diversity among psychiatric doctors be learned, or must it be lived? Can we teach our trainees culturally competent psychiatric care, and how do we deliver it? How can psychiatry provide an accessible and inclusive sphere of care in an era of disinformation? Join this panel discussion to learn from global experts in undergraduate and postgraduate educational development, about how an accessible future of psychiatry as an education, clinical practice, and a publicly accountable discipline, is vital to recruiting and training the best doctors in mental health around the world.
