New Promotional Foundation Film

The new promotional Foundation Film is now live on the College website. It appears on many of our Student Associate and Foundation pages, and is linked to from the Trainee pages and the front page. You can view it here on the SA homepage.

We will be circulating the film through our networks and promoting it via social media. As well as appearing on the College website the video is also intended for use at conferences, foundation inductions and other psychiatry forums.

This film has been developed to promote the expansion of psychiatry in the Foundation Programme. The trainees are from a range of specialities and they highlight their positive experiences during a foundation post.

For the purpose of this short film we have placed the emphasis on what to expect, and what they might learn including:-

• Skills
• Supervision and Support
• Advice

We are very thankful to Professor Stuart Carney, Deputy National Director of the UK Foundation Programme for featuring on this film and to all the trainees who took part.
