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

The Gatsby Foundation and Wellcome Trust Neuroscience Project

We’ve been awarded a generous grant by the Gatsby Foundation and Wellcome Trust to pilot exciting changes to the trainee psychiatry curriculum.

The aim is to make sure that training focuses more on the exciting advances in basic and clinical neuroscience, so that trainees are better equipped to provide mental health care in the future.

We want trainees to be able to develop and deliver innovative biomedical approaches to the diagnosis and treatment of adult mental health, neurodevelopmental, and neurodegenerative disorders.

We’ve set up a commission to lead the project, which will run until summer 2018.

News from our Stakeholder Outreach Programme

The Project team has begun an extensive programme of consultation activities and stakeholder engagement across the UK.

We have attended RCPsych Faculty and Division conferences, meetings of hospital trusts and the Psychiatric Trainees Committee. Evidence gathered will inform the Commission’s review of the Core Curriculum.

We are responding to stakeholder feedback with initiatives to facilitate and support the delivery of the neuroscience elements of psychiatric training.

We will be taking part in more events soon. Watch out for updates and register to come to an event.
