A Comprehensive guide to training and assessment in the UK for trainees and local educational providers.

This guide has been written to provide an overview of postgraduate training in psychiatry. It is intended to outline the process of training for a doctor in training in psychiatry and so assist them in meeting the requirements of the Curriculum.

It is also intended to be of value and to offer guidance to those involved in the training of such doctors at all levels and so it will be relevant to Educational Supervisors, tutors, Programme Directors, and heads of school.

The guide describes the standards for psychiatric training that the Royal College of Psychiatrists recommends, and so the guide may be used to support the Quality Assurance of psychiatric training. It is not intended to cover every detail and aspect of training but it sets out standards as they apply across all psychiatric training.

Please note this document replaces OP65: Postgraduate Training in Psychiatry: Essential Information for Trainees and Trainers.  The version available to download above was updated in January 2010.
