Trainers / Educational
The Perinatal Faculty is keen to support the
expansion of experience and training opportunities in Perinatal
Psychiatry. To this end we endorse the College's drive to develop
Foundation Doctor Taster sessions. Here is a summary document
detailing the typical experience a Foundation Doctor could expect
in a Perinatal Psychiatry Service.
We have also provided draft job
descriptions for trainees in Perinatal Psychiatry to assist
Educational Supervisors in drawing up job descriptions for their
own posts. Intended learning objectives are included and can be
modified to meet local circumstances.
