To all trainees,
We would like to let you know about a great
opportunity to contribute to your trainee committee and see your
name in print!
Please submit an article to the next edition
of ‘The Registrar’, the PTC’s quarterly magazine.
We are interested in submissions, which are
relevant to training, including pieces on education, leadership,
research, conferences, exams, recruitment, interviews and any other
issues you feel are important to trainees.
The article should be 1-2 pages and if
possible should also include photos or images (which are free from
copyright issues). Don't forget to include your name, title, place
of work and contact details.
Please send your submissions and direct any
queries to : firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to hearing from you!
The PTC editorial team
You can see previous editions
of the magazine using the links below, and you'll see
that we've had a major facelift over the past couple of years!
Articles should be around 400-600 words
but shorter ones, especially for adverts for upcoming events,
courses or conferences are welcomed.
Any topics that are relevant to training in
psychiatry or would be of interest to psychiatric trainees always
have a better chance at being accepted. We love hearing about
innovative projects that fit with the PTC agenda of increasing
recruitment to psychiatry and improving training, and about
interesting things psychiatrists do outside of their clinical work,
for example in volunteering, sports or music. 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 an elected PTC member who is known to us
We aim for something really visually appealing
and can include lots of relevant pictures as 'The Registrar' is
sent to all UK psychiatry trainees 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
trainees can contact you, if you are happy with this.
Please email the editorial team
with any new submissions or ideas for commissioned
