Extract

The career paths of many trainees in psychiatry are influenced by their experience of a six month SHO/registrar training post in a particular speciality. Not all trainees, however, may be aware of the training requirements for a specialist consultant post, career prospects and most importantly of the practicalities of working on a day to day basis as a specialist consultant or a consultant with special interest or responsibility. Furthermore, some SR trainees may have a limited choice of placement in a SR training scheme and with the diminishing availability of pure general psychiatry consultant posts, a year's training at senior registrar level may determine a trainee's whole career.
