Curricula review project

Why review the curricula?

We're conducting an extensive revision of all psychiatric training curricula, to be completed by the end of 2020.

This will meet the new standards set by the GMC, and make sure the training programme is in line with the principles of the Shape of Training review.

The new requirements signal a departure from providing lists of granular competencies towards areas of capability, with emphasis on the knowledge, skills and attitudes that can be applied to a wide range of circumstances.

How can you get involved?

The Working Group will be undertaking extensive stakeholder engagement throughout the revision process and will be inviting stakeholders to input into the work.

Regular updates

We will be attending Faculty and Committee meetings during 2018/19 to share updates on the project and to ask for feedback.

If you would like to be involved or have a question to ask about the project, please contact:
