Did you know that the College has 15 Special Interest Groups (SIGs) focusing on a range of areas which are not covered in the scope of College Faculties?
Some SIGs have been running at the College for upwards of 25 years, whilst others are in their infancy.
Membership of the different SIGs varies from just under 1,000 members to upwards of 4,500 and a dedicated SIG stand at the recent International Congress 2019 provided a great platform to publicise the work of these groups for the first time.
“The SIGs allow people to explore important, cross-cutting areas in psychiatry, which opens up new opportunities for members,” says College Registrar, Dr Adrian James. “Without doubt, the work of these networks has led to considerable benefits for the profession and patients.”
We’ve produced a leaflet introducing each SIG, which we launched at International Congress earlier this month, explaining what they do and giving contact details.
