Council have given consideration to the organization of rotational training schemes in psychiatry at senior house officer and registrar level and the assessment of trainees. Council are conscious of the wide range of opinion held within the profession about the content of general professional (i.e. pre-MRCPsych) training and the need for any guidance offered to be sufficiently flexible to accommodate a variety of viewpoints. Nonetheless, it is felt that reasonably clear advice can be given about the main components of general professional training. It is hoped that this report will be helpful to psychiatric tutors and others responsible for organizing training schemes. The College has already issued guidance on some of the matters with which this report is concerned in its pamphlet Educational Programmes for Trainees in Psychiatry and in an article entitled ‘Approval Visits: Guidelines on Criteria and Facilities for Training’ (Bulletin, September 1978, pp 158–59).
