The Royal College of Psychiatrists Improving the lives of people with mental illness

Careers and Council

Friday, 27 April

Last night we held a careers evening at Belgrave Square for medical students. It was an absolute joy to meet with a group of medical students bright and caring enough to know that the only possible career they can follow is psychiatry! Dr Alice Lomax, chair of our Psychiatric Trainees Committee, Dr Tom Brown, our Associate Registrar for Recruitment, Dr Wendy Burn, the Dean, and many others were there last night, and all did a splendid job of increasing the student’s knowledge of the huge variety of clinical and academic opportunities that lie open to them with a career in psychiatry.

Today is the meeting of our College Council. Next week, I will blog again to give you information about the key actions that arise from the meeting.

After Council, it’s home to my grandchildren and the leaking roof. For those of you who read this blog regularly and have followed the leaky roof saga, you may like to know that a solution is now in sight!

Next week, I'm attending two conferences organised by the Eastern Division North West Division, and hope to meet many more membrs then. I will be attending a meeting with the Department of Health about actions we all need to take following Winterbourne, and preparing to fly out to Philadelphia on Friday for the American Psychiatric Association's 165th Annual Congress. Wishing you a good weekend.
