Learning modules

All modules are peer-reviewed by experts, are checked by the College’s Examinations Panel for relevance to the MRCPsych syllabus and are supported by our Psychiatric Trainees’ Committee (PTC).

Module topics are drawn from the basic sciences of the MRCPsych curriculum.

Each one will take you around 1-1½ hours to do.

If you complete a module alongside the specific Key reading list, you should get an examination-level understanding of a given topic.

All modules include: an introduction, a key reading list, personalised notebook tool, a selection of test questions, section summaries, take-home notes, plus author and reviewer biographies.
