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

South West Division Training (SWDT)

The Division, through SWDT, provides high quality postgraduate education for the personal development and continuing professional development of psychiatrists in the region.

The following events are considered suitable for CPD subject to the agreement of the individual's peer group.


SWDT EVENTS IN 2015 - 16

  • Retired Doctors Programme for 2015 - See our Retired Doctors page
  • The South West Division put together four half day courses in 2014 specifically to meet the needs of retired or resting psychiatrists and we will be running further events during 2015.

    The topics will reflect what we believe to be the mainstream needs of psychiatrists who continue to offer help and advice, or are involved in activities such as Section 12 work. Each meeting will include a short update on revalidation, especially to hear members’ experiences and to share good or helpful practice.

  • Social Media Course
    2 February 2016 - Coombe Lodge, Blagdon, North Somerset, BS40 7RE
    Are you curious about social media? Worried about how it is affecting our lives and the people we help? This course will be a great opportunity to learn more about all aspects of social media.

    Further details and leaflet will be available in due course

The SWDT programme is constantly being updated and the following courses are proposed for 2015:

  • An introduction to Psychiatric Ethics
  • Risk Management Course
  • Physical Health Workshop
  • Medico Legal Course

Further details and leaflets will be available in due course

For information on any of the above courses please contact Angela Burge, James Gregory or Abigail Watts.

We are continually improving our programme to better meet your needs, so please do let us know if there are any subjects you would like to be included in the future.
