Curricula review project

November 2020 Project Update

Thank you for your contribution to the stakeholder consultation for the higher specialty and endorsement curricula that took place over the summer.

We have now submitted the finalised curricula to the GMC, and are due to receive approval in January 2021. We will continue to update on progress.

At present, we are still planning to implement the curricula in August 2021.

In the meantime, if you have any queries regarding timescales or implementation, please contact our curricula team at curricula@rcpsych.ac.uk.

    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 aim of the new framework is to ensure a clear purpose for each curricula, including High-Level Outcomes (HLOs) and Key Capabilities (KCs).
