Dr Pratap Sharan
Professor of Psychiatry

Profession: Medicine - Psychiatry

Institution: All India Institute of Medical Sciences

Country: India


I am a professor of psychiatry at All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi. I completed my MD (Psychiatry) training at AIIMS in 1990 and obtained my PhD from Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Chandigarh, India in 2003. I strongly feel that there are multiple ways to recognize different lived realities of suffering worldwide and to respond to distress. I also support development that is owned and sustained by people in the South.


I am interested in engaging with definition and classification of psychopathology, so that they acknowledge the diversity of truths around well and ill-being.
