Trainees' Forum: Psychiatrists' Views on their Preregistration Year

  • Robert Goodman (a1)
Extract

Since its introduction in 1953, the preregistration year has been divided equally between medicine and surgery. The General Medical Council has recently shown renewed interest in possible modifications to this time honoured scheme. One pilot scheme at St Mary's Hospital in London has successfully incorporated a four month period of general practice in the preregistration year, reducing the preregistration medical and surgical jobs to four months each. Another pilot scheme in Sheffield involves four months of psychiatry, four months of general medicine, and four months of general surgery. A psychiatric perspective on possible changes in the preregistration year is included in a report that derives from a conference held by the Royal College of Psychiatrists, the Association of University Teachers of Psychiatry, and the Association of Psychiatrists in Training.
