(TrOn) is the latest development from the College to
support the learning needs of psychiatrists in training preparing for the MRCPsych exams. In conjunction
with the Psychiatric Trainees’ Committee (PTC), it has been agreed
that about 70 online learning modules, covering the Basic Sciences
MRCPsych curriculum, will be created and hosted by the College.
The content of these modules will be screened by the College
Examinations Panels, to ensure that material meets the expectations
of the relevant Membership Examinations, although it should be
noted that modules will include specific ‘Further Reading’ lists,
and an examination-level understanding of a given topic should only
be expected in association with this further reading.
Higher Trainees may be interested in
contributing to this teaching material, which will be made freely
available to associates of the College studying for their
examinations. Writers of modules will be paid £200 and their
authorship will be prominently acknowledged – fame awaits.
Interested trainees should
peruse the list of modules, and contact Victoria Walker for
more information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
