The Royal College of Psychiatrists Improving the lives of people with mental illness

 

Projects


 

In order for Psychiatry to grow and thrive, we need to recruit the best medical students into the profession.  This is a key objective of the College and is therefore one of the priority projects for Development. We are delighted that we were able to launch the RCPsych Pathfinder Fellowships early in 2012.  These Fellowships will continue to be awarded to medical students in their penultimate year of medical school and will run for three years.  Our plan is to award at least 10 Fellowships each year. 

 

In October 2013 the College relocated from our building in Belgrave Square to our new home in the City of London. This provides the Development office with an opportunity to secure funding so as to ensure that the result is an outstanding facility for all our members – somewhere where we are able to hold our receptions and lectures; our examinations, dinners and council meetings. We have created a space to last our College well into the future.  The new building will also enable us to have all of our London based staff working together in a modern, state-of-the-art building. This move will ultimately be of service to all people with mental health issues as we concentrate on delivering our exemplar training and standards, and continuing to support psychiatrists in their work across the UK as well as overseas.

 

As part of the government’s commitment to reducing carbon emissions, the College is committed to funding a two-year RCPsych Research Fellow into Sustainability in Mental Health.  Working very closely with the Centre for Sustainable Healthcare and partners at Warwick and Nottingham Universities, we have now appointed Dr Daniel Maughan as the Fellow and will fund his two-year project with income from a member’s legacy.
