Research in Psychiatric Departments in the United Kingdom and Its Relationship to the Psychosomatic Approach
There has been increasing interest in the United Kingdom during recent years in enabling psychiatric trainees to carry out research (Crammer, 1979; Goldberg, 1981; Priest, 1973; Sainsbury & Kreitman, 1975). This has been encouraged by the Royal College of Psychiatrists. As long ago as 1961 Aubrey Lewis, well known head of the Institute of Psychiatry at the Maudsley Hospital in London for many years, stated his view on the subject: “Prominent among the obligations of those who provide postgraduate education is the duty to recognize and further whatever talents for research their students possess” (Lewis, 1961).
