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
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
Please send your submissions and direct any queries to :
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!
Accessing previous issues:
Should you require a copy of any pre-2010 magazines not
currently available on the website, please contact the College
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
