These webpages contain the learning resources for the North West School of Psychiatry’s MRCPsych Course.

The MRCPsych course is a 2-year NHS-run programme which aims to bring ‘theory to practice’, and to reconnect the training strands of the weekly local teaching programmes, regional academic days, psychotherapy training and supervision from the trainee’s supervisor.

There is an explicit link to the MRCPsych syllabus and examinations, set by the Royal College of Psychiatrists.

This part of the website has a ‘trainee portal’ which contains all the resources needed, including the presentations used in local and regional teaching sessions. There is a also a ‘tutor portal’ for the local organisations.
