CT1 trainee survey

Recruitment into Psychiatry has always been a challenge and there are lots of misconceptions that people can have which might put them off. We are glad that you have made the decision to train in Psychiatry and the Psychiatric Trainees Committee welcomes you and hopes to be able to support you to have a long and fulfilling career. We want to be able to encourage other doctors to join us in Choosing Psychiatry and this is where we need your help!

We would be really grateful if you could spare a few minutes completing this survey to help us understand the factors which may have given you reservations about joining the specialty and those which helped you to decide that Psychiatry was for you! We want to look at your experiences both before and after qualification and see if there are any areas that the College can focus on to help draw doctors like yourselves to train in psychiatry.

Having more doctors training to be psychiatrists can significantly improve patient care and the experience of doctors already working within the specialty. We hope that you would be able to spare some time for this cause and complete the survey.
