The Postgraduate Training Department is delighted to announce that the first suite of Higher Specialist Training e-modules are now available on CPsychI Moodle. The objective of these e-modules is to provide a collection of educational material across the main clinical areas for trainees in psychiatry. Providing these modules online ensures that all trainees have equal access regardless of geographical location. It also offers flexibility for trainees to learn independently at their convenience.
