CPD eLearning (formerly CPD Online) is a resource provided by the Royal College of Psychiatrists for mental health professionals, housed on our new eLearning Hub.
CPD eLearning offers a range of learning modules and podcasts that provide a flexible, interactive way of keeping up to date with progress in mental health. During the pandemic, there will be no limit on eLearning that can be counted for CPD; it will be possible for ALL 50 CREDITS to be obtained in this way. Access to the modules is through annual subscription, but we also offer a series of free modules and podcasts for you to trial first.
For more information, visit the CPD eLearning website.

Trainees Online (TrOn)
Trainees Online (TrOn) is an online learning resource developed by the Royal College of Psychiatrists to support trainee psychiatrists in their preparation for the MRCPsych exams. Modules are being developed to cover the Basic Sciences on the MRCPsych syllabus and there are plans to commission further modules on the clinical topics in the syllabus. TrOn is currently free for all members of the College to access using the same login details as for the Members Area of the main College website.
If you are a supervisor/trainer you can use TrOn as a high quality learning resouce to share with your trainees. All module content is aligned with knowledge that trainees are required to develop for the MRCPsych exams.
If you are interested in reviewing a module for Trainees Online more information is available. Please visit the Modules in progress and coming next page on TrOn to see which modules are currently scheduled to appear on the website.
WPA and BJPsych Advances
Working together to support the authors of the future
The World Psychiatric Association (WPA) and BJPsych Advances, The Royal College of Psychiatrists’ CPD journal for consultant psychiatrists, are delighted to announce a new collaboration aiming to assist psychiatric trainees and early career psychiatrists to develop their writing skills.
Winners of the WPA’s 3 Minutes Presentations Competition to be held during the virtual 21st WPA World Congress of Psychiatry (18-21 October 2021) will be offered the opportunity to write an article for BJPsych Advances about a topic they presented during their session. The WPA will identify mentors to work with the winners to ensure that submissions reach the high quality required by the journal and they will be peer reviewed in the usual way.
This follows the publication of the BJPsych Advances/WPA Stress and Resilience special issue earlier this year and we look forward to further strengthening the collaboration between the BJPsych portfolio and WPA.
