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 couple of years! We are always looking for new submissions from psychiatric trainees, or from others on subjects relevant to psychiatric training. 



Previous newsletters can be viewed by clicking on the links below:

Should you require a copy of any pre-2010 newsletters not currently available on the website, please contact the College Archivist, Francis Maunze.


Guidelines for submissions

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 all). 


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 articles.
