College News & Announcements

If the General Election has not put you off politics forever than this might be the opportunity for you. The Royal College of Psychiatrists is offering the opportunity for four ST4-6 trainees to take part in a Parliamentary Scholar Programme. You will be working closely with members of the House of Lords and RCPsych’s public affairs team to learn about Parliament and how to use your expertise in mental health to influence political debates and encourage evidence based policy making. We’re looking for up to four ST4-6 trainees drawn from the range of psychiatric subspecialties to use their special interest sessions to take advantage of what we hope will be a fascinating experience

Further details and how to apply (PDF)

Applicants are required to submit a CV and supporting statement (no more than one side of A4) to Kate Lovett, Dean. Email:

Closing date for applications 31 May 2017. Interviews will be held on 20 July 2017.
