Courses for 2015
The South West Division put together four half
day courses in 2014 specifically to meet the needs of retired or
resting psychiatrists and we will be running the events during
2015. We are aware that retired psychiatrists can feel isolated and

psychiatry. During the afternoon delegates will take part in
a mock interview with an expert panel of doctors, HR personnel and
directors who are all experienced interview panel members.
Please note this course is limited to 16 delegates
