SHO posts in psychiatry in the 1990s

  • A. H. Crisp (a1)
Extract

Some of the proposals in Achieving a Balance (DHSS, 1987) seem to have developed with little regard for postgraduate training in psychiatry. In psychiatry it has become common practice for SHO posts to be incorporated in training schemes with registrar posts, allowing several years of overall basic specialist training in preparation for obtaining the MRCPsych. This is in accord with the GMC Education Committee's position (GMC, 1987a) that specialist training can, on the ‘fast track’, follow on immediately from satisfactory completion of pre-registration posts (general clinical training) and full registration. Achieving a Balance states clearly that specialist training begins at registrar level and that any doctors in SHO posts should be receiving further general training. There are few guidelines concerning the necessary nature of such general training.
