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

National Recruitment to Psychiatry in England, Scotland and Wales

Broad Based Training

August 2014 intake

Healthcare provision is changing: our populations are living longer and have more complex and long term conditions; our technology is developing, with the potential to monitor chronic disease in the home and community; and our resources are increasingly more limited, necessitating more efficient and effective care. Current boundaries between primary and secondary care are becoming blurred, and healthcare is moving from managing single episodes of illness in acute hospitals to a more integrated model of treating patients who present with acute illness on top of long term conditions within community settings.


To address the changing needs of the population and the profession we are developing a new ways of training specialists to prepare them for the challenges ahead. The Broad Based Training (BBT) is a new two-year structured core training programme which provides six-month placements in core medical training, general practice, paediatrics and psychiatry. Subject to satisfactory progression, trainees will then enter core training at CT/ST2 level in one of the four specialties.
