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

Student Associate Newsletter

Welcome to the Student Associate Newsletter, futurePsych

PTC's newsletter, 'The Registrar'

You can see previous editions using the links below, and you'll see that we've had a major facelift over the past year!


We are always looking for new submissions from medical students, foundation doctors, or from others on subjects relevant to future careers in psychiatry or which would be of interest to medical students and foundation doctors considering a career in psychiatry. 



*Past newsletters have now been archived, should you require access to these newsletters please email Francis Maunze (Archivist).

Guidelines for submissions

Articles should be between 400-600 words but shorter ones, especially adverts for upcoming events, courses or conferences, are welcomed.  Any topics that are relevant to future careers in psychiatry or which would be of interest to medical students and foundation doctors considering a career in psychiatry always have a better chance at being accepted.  We love hearing about innovative SSCs (student selected components), your psychiatry society, events and conferences you have attended, new books or films related to psychiatry, and your psychiatry medical electives.  Articles will be peer-reviewed by a member of the editorial team who does not know the author personally (unless this isn't possible, for example if the author is a newsletter team member who is known to us all). 


We aim for something really visually appealing and can include lots of relevant pictures as futurePsych is sent to all Student Associates of the College by email - so we have no printing costs.  We do of course have to have permission to reproduce photos and pictures, so we will need to know where the ones you supply have come from.  We would also like to include a photo of you, the author, and your email address so that interested people can contact you, if you are happy with this. 


Please email the editorial team with any new submissions or ideas for commissioned articles

If you are a medical student or foundation doctor, and would like to receive notification when the latest edition of futurePsych has been published, please join the College as a student associate member.
