Overview of Specialty Training in Psychiatry

The Maudsley has always been synonymous with clinical and academic excellence in psychiatry and is internationally recognised as a centre for high quality, reliable psychiatric training, with an established track record of Maudsley trained alumni successfully securing senior clinical and academic posts both nationally and internationally.


The Maudsley Training Programme offers a wide range of clinical posts and teaching methods, delivered by both academic and clinical trainers of a high calibre, giving you options to tailor your training experience to meet your individual needs and preferences.

We are also unique in British psychiatry because of our proximity to the research hub of the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience and King's College London, a relationship now formalised within King's Health Partners and are affiliated to the pioneering NIHR Specialist Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) for Mental Health.

Our specialist BRC is driving translational research in mental health, and building on a strong scientific base in biological research, in psychology, epidemiology and other disciplines; we aim to improve the health of our patients and communities through developing new treatments, better assessments and earlier, more individualised interventions for a wide range of disorders.


The facilities and resources available through the BRC offer unparalleled research opportunities and trainees at all levels of training are encouraged to develop specialised interests and are helped to form links with a research group, identifying a potential supervisor within their field of interest.

On this site you can find out more about what we do to train and educate the psychiatrists of today and tomorrow, with information about our training programmes, the range of training opportunities we provide and information on how to apply for undergraduate psychiatric training, core and higher training in psychiatric specialities and useful links to our partner organisations.
