Frequently Asked Questions

What is forensic psychiatry?

The American Academy of Psychiatry and the Law defines forensic psychiatry as “a subspecialty of psychiatry in which scientific and clinical expertise is applied to legal contexts involving civil, criminal, correctional, regulatory or legislative matters, and in specialized clinical consultations in areas such as risk assessment or employment” (AAPL 2005).

How does one become a forensic psychiatrist?

Forensic psychiatrists are physicians who, after medical school, complete a residency in psychiatry and a fellowship in forensic psychiatry. A forensic psychiatry fellowship includes rigorous training in providing consultations and opinions on psychiatric issues in legal contexts.
