About the Division

 

Members in Northern and Yorkshire Division are supported by a strong, committed Executive Committee which meets quarterly.

The Executive Committee has an active academic programme and hosts two academic conferences each year.

As well as the academic theme, one conference incorporates a Trainee/FY2 and Medical Student/FY1 competition. We’ll let you know about conferences and trainee competitions on twitter @rcpsychNY and on these webpages.

Engaging with the College

The Executive Committee encourage members to engage with the College locally, and welcome comments and suggestions from the wider membership.

If you’d like to contact the Executive Committee, you can do so via the Division Office.

Promoting psychiatry

We’re committed to promoting psychiatry, actively taking an interest in local medical schools, in particular local psychiatric societies.

Medical students and Foundation Doctors are encouraged to attend events and conferences organised by the Division.

Involving patients and carers

Patient and carer input is important to the Division. If you are a patient or carer, you are represented on the Executive Committee, and we also hope to see you at Division conferences.

We publish notices of elections and job vacancies for members at the beginning of the year.

The Division hosts ad-hoc local events on behalf of the College, such as training for Approved Assessors and information about these events are posted on the webpage and notified to members by email.

Keeping your contact details up to date

The Division Office is committed to providing members with a fast and efficient service. So this can happen, members are asked to keep their contact details up to date – particularly their email addresses. 

Please let us know if your contact details change.
