Membership course or Masters course?

  • Gary Sullivan (a1) and Ian R. Jones (a2)
Extract

Doctors who are embarking upon general professional training in psychiatry as Senior House Officers (SHOs) are now faced with making a choice between two types of training schemes. The first type offers training on a membership course aimed primarily at teaching the skills required to pass Part 1 and Part 2 of the MRCPsych. The second type offers training on a university course leading to the award of a Masters degree in psychiatry.
