MRCPsych journal article collections

BJPsych Advances is delighted to present a series of article collections discussing topics suited to the curricula for the MRCPsych.

Whilst BJPsych Advances remains focused on the continuing education of consultants in psychiatry, we know that trainees and aspiring consultants also enjoy reading the journal.

The high-quality review papers published in the journal appeal to trainees in psychiatry whether preparing for examinations or those seeking consultant positions.

The papers in these collections are ideal for aspiring consultants, as the authors of our papers are a combination of clinicians and researchers, thus intertwining clinical practice with empirical evidence. All are rigorously peer-reviewed.

Within the journal, the scientific evidence is best exemplified in our Cochrane Corners and the linked Round the Corner commentaries. These provide a vehicle for understanding systematic reviews and meta-analyses. Additionally, the peer-reviewed contributions from experienced clinicians provide the wisdom of experience. In combination, both represent the metier for high-quality psychiatric practice.

These collections are for reference only and include content published more than three years ago. Please refer to our curricula and guidance section for the most up-to-date information.

The BJPsych Advances Editorial Board would like to thank Dr Rosemary Gordon, Chair of the Psychiatric Trainees' Committee (PTC) 2021-2022, and the PTC for their help in curating these collections. We look forward to working in co-operation with them so as to assist consultants and psychiatrists in training.
