METIS uploads

Don’t forget you can now upload anything you want to METIS.  If you experience difficulties uploading scanned documents it is usually because of your scanner settings, reduce the size it scans and all should be well.  Try to PDF any uploads and this too reduces the size.  If you experience any problems using METIS then please call us on 0161 720 2905/4872

Pastoral Care

The School supports trainees throughout their training, but particularly in times of difficulty or career uncertainty. More information can be found in the relevant career policy, or contact your local tutor, the school or your TPD for more advice – all numbers on the ‘contact us’ page.

The Deanery has an excellent page on Doctors in Difficulty

In addition, the School of Psychiatry has developed several Speciality Careers Support Policies, all of which can be found here

 Mandatory Training

All Mandatory training is now completed via the Deanery E Learning modules and is recorded on a core skills register which will hopefully eliminate the need to repeat certain topics every six months. Some training such as Breakaway/CPR will be provided by your host trust.
