Welcome to the Royal College of
Psychiatrists Trainees Online, or ‘TrOn’.
The College has created this teaching
resource to assist you in your preparation for the Membership
Examination. The modules have been designed and written by
hand-picked authors whose works have been edited through a rigorous
peer-review process in order to provide you with accessible,
digestible and memorable learning materials.
As Trainees Online is produced by the Royal
College of Psychiatrists, quality and relevance is guaranteed. The
learning activities are mostly written by post-membership trainees
familiar with the exam and subsequently peer reviewed by
subject area experts. Input in content selection is also guided
with the assistance of College examination panels to ensure
accurate blueprinting to the College curriculum and the
requirements of the examination. We are confident that careful
study of the modules, whether on computer or mobile phone, together
with review of the recommended 'Key Reading' will be well rewarded
when the examination comes round.
We are particularly grateful if trainees leave
feedback on any aspect of TrOn, particularly the presentation
and content of our modules. Also, if you would like to get further
involved with any of our online educational activities further just
drop us a line for details of current and forthcoming
Trainees Online is the younger sibling of
a successful model, the College's CPD Online.
We hope you will enjoy using TrOn to aid your development as
professionals, and that it will support your success in the
Membership Examination. If you feel you have benefited from using
it, please let your colleagues know too!
