Learning modules

All modules are written by experts in their field and are peer reviewed and edited to the highest standards.

Modules take between 30 and 90 minutes to complete. We add new content to the website and ask our authors to review and update existing content regularly to ensure that we maintain quality, up-to-date content that is relevant for fully qualified psychiatrists and other mental health professionals.

Our ever-growing list of modules and podcasts provides a flexible, interactive way of keeping up to date with progress in mental health, and complements the College's other long-established CPD activities, such as BJPsych Advances.

Institutional subscribers

An 'institutional subscription' is required when you have more than 10 users within one workplace/site/Trust. Athens authentication is used to give your multiple users access to the CPD eLearning site easily.

It is a cost-effective way to provide 50 hours of CPD for many psychiatrists at once.

Institutional prices are grouped into 'bands' depending on how many users you want; the higher the number of users, the bigger the savings your institution can make. To see the price bands and place an order, visit the subscribe page.
