The MRCPsych course is lead by Dr Subhash Gupta, Consultant Psychiatrist. It is a three year, two phase course divided into 12 modules covering the MRCPsych syllabus. CT1s joining the scheme cover basic modules relevant to Paper A (old paper 1 and 2) before moving onto Phase Two covering the clinical subspecialties relevant to Paper B (old paper 3) and the CASC. It runs all day on Fridays at sites around the Peninsula with teaching delivered mainly by consultant psychiatrists. Special sessions on CASC practice and skills are run as part of the course. The course is also supported by an electronic web forum containing all presentations given and is committed to the development of further e-learning resources.
We are very fortunate to have very enthusiastic and motivated lecturers and module leads, who work tirelessly to keep the course up to date and use various interactive methods to make it engaging and popular amongst trainees. The lecturers and module leads are working with Dr Gupta (with active support from trainees) to develop a question bank for different modules which will be helpful to trainees in preparation for their exams.
