Abstract

AIMS AND METHOD

To explore user perspectives on the content and delivery of the undergraduate curriculum in psychiatry. The study design was qualitative and used focus groups. Four focus groups were run with a total of 28 participants.

RESULTS

The key finding was that participants were clearer about the attitudes they felt students should convey than they were about the skills and knowledge required.

CLINICAL IMPLICATIONS

Service user perspectives on the content of the undergraduate psychiatry curriculum need to be considered as curricula are developed.
