Undergraduate Teaching Leads Forum - curriculum

The RCPsych Undergraduate Education Forum has developed an undergraduate psychiatry curriculum in consultation with multiple stakeholders including:

  • student societies

  • clinical schools

  • patient/carer organisations, RCPsych faculties/sections/special interest groups

  • an open workshop at the RCPsych International Congress.


We recommend that this curriculum details what psychiatry medical students need to learn on their course to become competent doctors. The input from multiple and differing stakeholders increases its validity. We believe that the curriculum provides a useful basis of what psychiatry should be taught and examined on undergraduate courses. We also believe that students should be given the curriculum so they clearly know what they should learn. We of course recognize and respect that all medical schools have a right to set their own curriculum and may want to deviate from this.


There is currently a revision underway and any feedback or suggestions would be very welcome. These should be sent to Professor Ania Korszun.
