application form

91 posts in this topic

Has anybody noticed new application form for 2009? Permanent staffgrade is not included in the employment section. New elligibility criteria says NON PMETB post holders must complete paper3 in Dec 09. I am very confused, Are we (staffgrades with part 1) not allowed to resit in paper3?

Hi Anusha!

Looks like you are in an anxious frame of mind at the moment.

Permanent Staff Grade and Associate Specialists, etc. areincluded under the 'Speciality Doctors' umbrella.

As far as I am aware, there is no mention of 'New elligibility criteria says NON PMETB post holders must complete paper3 in Dec 09' anywhere in the New eligibility criteria!

Don't worry, go ahead and apply with the cheque made out correctly and with 2 sponsors. There is nothing to stop you from sitting paper 3 next year.

Good luck! ;)

staff grades who have completed required training for  written papers or CASC which has mentioned in eligibility criteria 2009 do not need to show WBPAs but needs the form to be sign by clinical tutor and medical director of the trust or Board (in Scotland).

I could not find mentioning that Non-PMETB holders must6 complete paper3 by Dec 09.

i called up the college today , they are saying that staff grades need to have WBPAs as well from 2009 even if they have all the training. They didn't need to do that until Dec. 2008.

why should you be feeling embarrased? Its a requirment for exam, and everyone will have to do it, so what's d embarrasment there?

Even ST4-6 have WPBAs to complete and consultants do appraise themselves (even if its once in a blue moon).

As far as I know the form for paper 3 need to be sign by clinical tutor and Medical director as we did last time for paper 3.

I got reply from college as under

Dear Doctor,

Thank you for your email. The minimum requirement for the MRCPsych written papers is 12 months. You have 30 months and therefore fulfill the training requirements. So long as you get the sponsorship form signed then it should not be a problem to be eligible for the exam.

Regards,

so does tht mean no WPBAs

but the clinical tutor or medical director is supposed to sign the form only if you have completed your wpba. so it depends on ur tutor and medical director how anal they want to get about it.

Ebrahimi let us know if you succeed...

beacuse the college is saying it is your resposibility to get the form signed off howevr that might be...but I know how college tutors are , theyw will say the form says that we need to show documentary evidence to the tutor...so...

ok so just to clear the confusion once and for all,

my understanding is,

ppl who have already appeared in paper3 the last time arround or before DO NOT need to complete any WPBA

BUT

ppl who are attempting it the first time, need to complete them

Is that the case ????
