Core psychiatry course

This is a process and research-based course with learning objectives and modules for each specialty. Sessions are mapped to the Royal College curriculum and supported by the syllabus and cover all subspecialties within Psychiatry. 

Trainees work together in small geographically based learning sets which are established for trainees at the start of the year to facilitate learning. They use their clinical practice to inform their learning, hence linking work with knowledge. They will create their own portfolio with reflections on their learning and other resources and information.  

There will be an ongoing evaluation of this course.

The 2018- 2019 schedule can be accessed here.
