Forensic Psychiatry training with the HENW School of Psychiatry offers many benefits:
- Friendly and supportive consultants and colleagues in all placements
- Experience of working across all levels of security (low, medium and high)
- Opportunity and encouragement to gain experience in leadership and management, medical education and clinical research as special interests
- Relatively small geographical footprint; all placements are easily commutable from Liverpool
Above all, this scheme helps trainees gain the necessary skills to move seamlessly towards becoming a consultant.
I would recommend this training scheme to any core trainees considering a career in Forensic Psychiatry.
An excellent scheme which provides placements in different levels of security, low, medium and high, with very supportive and very experienced trainers. There are also ample opportunities for special interest areas. As a higher trainee, I felt very supported and valued.
