So who wants to be a consultant general psychiatrist

  • John Milton (a1)
Abstract

This study addresses the perception among senior trainees that the lot of a consultant general psychiatrist is currently not a happy one and that transition from training to consultant grade can be difficult. Reasons for this are explored and alternatives suggested that might make the move from senior/ specialist registrar to consultant general psychiatrist a more rewarding and attractive proposition.
