The aim of the paper is to describe the pre-registration house officer training in psychiatry available in Sheffield. The report is the result of a postal questionnaire, involving all of those who undertook pre-registration house officer training in psychiatry, since the inception of this option.
The results suggest that the psychiatry option as part of pre-registration house officer training was regarded as useful by almost all undertaking this training. Some of the suggestions to improve the experience are already incorporated into the current posts.
The findings support the development of further posts of this type, and such developments may assist in overcoming some of the difficulties in recruitment into psychiatry as a career.
