Attitudes to Research among Royal Free Psychiatric Trainees and Consultants

  • Chris Burford (a1)
Extract

The promotion of interest in research has long been one of the objectives of psychiatric training, reaching its zenith in the now defunct academic DPM. The successor, the MRCPsych, has retained a research option even though the main stress is on clinical and scientific knowledge. The 1980 Handbook for Trainees and Inceptors noted that “The aim of the research option is to encourage trainees to acquire more searching and critical approaches and to foster interest in clinical data, literature, the teaching of psychiatric practice, and research.” Although the option has been used by “only a relatively small number of people”, who have as a rule been “exceptionally able and energetic candidates”, it has been retained in the newest version of the examination.
