The role of the speciality tutor in the training of junior doctors in psychiatry

  • Patricia Hughes (a1)
Extract

“The Speciality Tutor is a psychiatrist working in the fields of child and adolescent psychiatry, psychotherapy, forensic psychiatry, learning disability, psycho-geriatrics, or the dependencies (drugs and alcohol), who is regarded as the tutor for the organisation of training in that speciality in the Region. There is one tutor for each Region.” (Royal College of Psychiatrists, 1996)

The speciality tutor is recognised but not appointed by the College. He or she may be appointed by the University, the Regional Post graduate Education Committee, or by a local committee, for example, the local Division of Psychiatry. The appointment, however, must have the agreement of colleagues (Royal College of Psychiatrists, 1996).
