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

Time Out of Training

Previously, trainees in psychiatry could count up to a maximum of 3 months whole time equivalent whilst on maternity leave or sick leave towards their CCT or CESR CP.

As of 1 April 2013, trainees who have been absent for a total of more than 14 days within each 12 month period will require their CCT or CESR CP date to be reviewed. A decision on whether an extension to the CCT or CESR CP date needs to occur is decided in consultation between the deanery and the college. It is unlikely that they will do this on every absence occasion although as this is undertaken at the ARCP it is likely that there will be input from college individuals (i.e. TPDs). Each trainee will be considered on an individual basis, and any changes will reflect the trainee’s competence.

The GMC position statement on time out of training can be found here.

Please ensure you contact the Royal College of Psychiatrists if there are any extensions to your training which will necessitate revision of your CCT or CESR CP date.
