I am a Psychiatrist working in the UK and I created this blog with an aim to

  • Guide junior doctors through their journey of Psychiatry training.
  • Provide some valuable recourses and answer commonly asked questions.
  • Help international medical graduates understand training pathways in the UK

The contents on my blogs are reflections of my own experiences and should not be seen as a replacement of official guidelines by General Medical Council (GMC), Royal College of Psychiatrists (RCPsych) or psychiatry recruitment team.  Therefore,  if you find any information conflicting official guidance by GMC or RCPsych, please point it out and only trust the official sources of information.
