The Royal College of Psychiatrists’ response to MMC on Specialty Training Criteria is as follows:

What are the minimum, explicit entry criteria for your speciality?

7.0. Acute care
x. understands and applies the principles of managing a patient following self harm

xi. understands and applies the principles of management of a patient with an acute confusion state or psychosis Note – it is likely that theses competencies will be supplemented with appropriate items from the essential shared capabilities for healthcare workers, but this is still being researched. In addition we shall require evidence of motivation and enthusiasm and applicants will also be required to justify their reason for choosing psychiatry as a career.

4 At what Point will initial selection into the specialty occur?
This will probably occur during the last six months of foundation year two. What are your proposed methods for initial selection into your specialty (ST1/GPT)

1. Review of work place based assessment during the foundation programme

2. curriculum vitae 3. interview Note – there might also be an assessment of core psychiatric skills such as communication, history taking etc. but we are still researching this. What are your proposed methods for review during the first year?

1. Continual review of work placed based assessments, predominately using the four assessment methods that will be used in the foundation programme

2. an assessment of basic knowledge to take place towards the end of SC1 probably using a combination of NCQs (one from five, with no negative marking) and extended matching questions.

Which specialty/specialties might your specialty work with to develop a) a shared ST1 curriculum?
We are currently in early stages of negotiation to develop a shared ST1 curriculum with the following specialties: obstetrics and gynaecology , paediatrics and general practice.

b) curriculum beyond ST1?
None.

CCT applications are being accepted and the era of CCSTs is over. Dual CCTs will continue in the same way that dual CCSTs did. CCT can lead to Specialist Registration and is not an automatic right of appointment to a consultant post. Applications for entry into the Specialist Register using the route of Article 14 are being accepted on-line on the PMETB website. There is a helpful FAQ section.
