If you’d like to apply for a place on the Extreme Psychiatry course, read on…
The Autumn Extreme Psych term has already started, but please do apply if you’d like to be considered should a place come up. The link is below.
To be eligible for Extreme Psych, you need to be a third year medical student at King’s College London and about to start your NOP (Neurology, Ophthalmology, Psychiatry) rotation. (If you’re Chest / Abdo, please don’t apply early, as we can’t store your application.)
Term dates for 2017-18 are:
- Autumn: 24th October – 12th December
- Spring: 16th January – 6th March
- Summer: 3rd April – 22nd May
We love having a varied range of abilities and needs on the course. We prioritise students who are clearly struggling with psychiatry / communication skills, so pay special attention to any applications accompanied by objective evidence of struggling with clinical exams or communication skills (e.g. previous failed ICE / OSCE exams / concerns by Clinical Tutor or previous Firm Heads). Please send any evidence directly to firstname.lastname@example.org straight after filling in your application form.
If you’ve no objective evidence, that’s ok – just tell us why you’d benefit from being on Extreme Psych. If you’re simply in love with psychiatry, please say so – we have room for honest enthusiasts too!
Please only apply if you’ve read and can stick to our rules. They’re quite basic, but really important.
If you’re given a waiting list place, it helps us to have your mobile number, so we can contact you quickly, should a place come up. We won’t pass your number to nasty call centres who want to contact you about an accident you didn’t know you had).
Here’s the application form. (There are quite a few questions – both to evaluate your reasons for applying, and to help us evaluate the course).
