Now in its seventh year, our annual 2023 Choose Psychiatry campaign is aimed at encouraging medical students and foundation doctors to Choose Psychiatry as their specialty.
This year we’ll be extending this remit to encourage core trainees already working in the profession to remain, by Continuing to Choose Psychiatry too.
Here are five ways you and your networks can get involved, and support the campaign:
We have created a pack of campaign graphics that you can download and use in your social media posts across different platforms.
It helps us if you like and share our social media posts about the campaign as many times as you can. If you add your own comment, please remember to include the hashtag #ChoosePsychiatry.
