The Royal College of Psychiatrists is the only Royal College which allows its trainees to take an active role in decision making and determining policy. Its origins can be dated from 1973 when, after pressure by the Association of Psychiatrists in Training, a Trainees' Working Party was formed. This was a sub-committee of the Education Committee and allowed for some input by trainees on matters specifically related to training. In 1979, this working party was disbanded and replaced by the Collegiate Trainees' Committee, which is a Special Committee of Council and is directly responsible to it. Since its inception, the CTC has gradually increased its representation within the College so that it now has at least one trainee on every committee of the College except the Court of Electors. We therefore have an opportunity to comment on all issues of relevance to trainees and to psychiatry as a whole.
