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.
