Foundation School Bulletin

Application for the Autumn School of Psychiatry

When: Friday 23rd October

Venue: Online

Price: Free

We are delighted to announce this years’ Psychiatry Autumn School for Foundation Doctors which will be held virtually on 23rd October 2020. The event is aimed at F1 and F2 doctors who are interested in applying for Core Psychiatry Training.

This one day event aims to educate about the subspecialties within psychiatry, inform of the wide variety of career options, and discuss the application process. In previous years the feedback of this event has been outstanding with 95% of delegates reporting that they would recommend the Autumn School to others.

If you are interested then please email bristolautumnschool@gmail.com to apply. Priority will be given to foundation doctors but medical students are welcome too.

RCoA Core Anaesthetics Training Interview Course

Dear Doctor,

Applying for Core Anaesthetics Training? Feel like you need more preparation for the interview and want to know how to boost your
application, even if you think it's too late?

Introducing the 'Core Anaesthetics Training Interview Course', endorsed by the RCoA. This popular evening course is run by top-ranked trainees and is just the preparation and immediate feedback that you need, but in a low-pressure environment. It includes a mock-interview cycle, specific do's and don'ts for the day and how to gain last-minute points, plus an invaluable talk from consultant anaesthetists experienced at interviewing on the panel.

Obviously our number one priority is to keep attendees safe. We have been in frequent discussions with the RCoA, and will be able to hold the event across various floors at the venue (as will be the case for the FRCA examinations the week before) to maintain safe social distancing in line with government COVID-19 regulations.

The course fee is £70 (£90 after 14th November) and will be held on the
evening (6pm start) of Monday 14th December 2020 at the Royal College of
Anaesthetists, Churchill House, 35 Red Lion Square, London, WC1R 4SG.
