The Royal College of Psychiatrists Improving the lives of people with mental illness

RCPsych Parliamentary Scholar Programme

Are you a trainee with an interest in politics? Would you like to see how politics works first hand while developing your skills to be a future leader in mental health?

If so you may be interested in applying to join the Royal College of Psychiatrists Parliamentary Scholar Programme.

The Programme gives the chance for ST4-6 trainees to spend one day a week at the House of Lords working with Peers with an interest in mental health and learning disability to develop leadership and other skills necessary to influence policy on mental health matters.

It was set up last year with the help of Baroness Hollins, former President of The Royal College of Psychiatrists.

Due to its success we're delighted to be able to offer this opportunity again for 2018/19 to support up to five ST4-6 trainees drawn from the range of psychiatric subspecialties to use their special interest sessions to develop experience in parliamentary affairs.

Applicants are required to submit a CV and supporting statement (no more than one side of A4) to Kate Lovett, Dean. Email these to

Please note we are reopening the advert for this role. If you've already applied your application will still be considered unless you inform us you're no longer interested.

Closing date: July 15 2018, 11pm

Interviews will be held near the end of July 2018.
