  9. Congratulations Dr Dave on your achievement. I will be venturing into MRCPsych exams this year and I have two questions if you could take time and answer them, it would be highly appreciated. First being, after MRCPsych and subsequent GMC full registration, how are locum job perspective currently (Staff grade and Associate spl job)? Secondly, after MRCPsych and registration, how good are the chances now to get into the higher training (any ST placement) and which ST is relatively easy to get into? Best wishes and congrats once again.

  11. The next two day Cambridge MRPsych critical review course will be on 2nd and 3rd March 2019. Detailed teaching is given on all aspects of critical review, with hundreds of questions to practise on, which will then be discussed. Questions are broken up so they are given straight after the relevant teaching. Group size is small, so a lot of detailed teaching and discussion is possible. Feedback scores for this course are very high (4-5 out of 5) for nearly all attendees. For further details, contact Mitchell.Brookes-Jones@cpft.nhs.uk.
  12. Congratulations Dr Dave. Fantastic achievement indeed. Best wishes for your career to progress as per your wishes
  13. Hello PsychClub members! I joined this forum over 4 years (Nov 2014) ago, thinking seriously about moving from a SASG post to consultant. This was primarily to ensure job security but to develop within the role. It has been a long process and not to be underestimated but suited my circumstances. I would not advise anyone to follow if they would be better suited to re-enter training. I completed MRCPsych with help from the PsychClub forum and submitted my portfolio in March 2017. After what seemed like an eternity (Sept 2017) I was refused by the GMC. I submitted a review application in July 2018 with additional evidence. A few days ago I was approved for entry onto the Specialist Register! Many thanks to the support given by PsychClub members. Some things have changed in that time to make the process slightly easier and some areas are offering CESR directed SASG posts but it still needs a massive change to make the process clearer and to give more support to SASGs. I hope going forward I can help others follow this route if it suits their needs. Best wishes to all for the New Year! DrDave
  14. What wass the pass score in the last couple of years in Paper A
  15. I’m a medical student from malaysia. I’m required to take MRCpsych paper after my graduation. Is there anyone here willing to help me? I have no idea what’s my first step gonna be.
  16. Thanks, Zoran, really appreciate it.
  17. I agree with Yasir, except for a slight change in order. My preference would be: 1 Job in psychiatry 2 Job in another field 3 Clinical attachment in psychiatry In addition to psychiatric comorbidity that you will come across in 2, there will be transferable medical skills that you will gain, general experience of working for the NHS, and of course the benefits of actually earning. You will have good access to the local psychiatric department and you could always ask them to spend one session a week with them to show your special interest in psychiatry.
  18. Thanks, Yasir, That's was really helpful.
  19. Hi Insaf. Having a job in psychiatry or a clinical attachment is better than having work experience in any other field. However, you could work in any medical speciality and then find an aspect related to psychiatry in that job that you could use to highlight how that enhanced your understanding of the psychiatric aspect of any medical or surgical condition. My first NHS post was in ENT before entering psychiatry training, so I was able to discuss how mental health problems co-existed in some ENT disorders, such as depression following diagnosis and treatment of head and neck cancers. All the best.
  20. Hi everyone, I was wondering, which is better, A- Having a job in any field B- Start clinical attachment in psychiatry I am planning to start psychiatry training in August 2019, I couldn't find a job in psychiatry field as most of the offers need psychiatry experience.

  24. Hi, I'm sitting my second CASC exam in January after failing to pass the CASC in September (passed 8 stations). I'm looking for a study-buddy as the biggest reason a failed the first attempt was because of lack of practice and anxiety. The benefit would be reciprocal to whomever is interested. Good luck ..
  25. Hi all. I’ve been having trouble signing in spmm through Google account. Anybody facing the same problem? I tried with Signing In with Google but the Error 400 popped out. I have no issues logging in before this. i tried again with username. Also to no avail. Please help.
