The College holds two flagship Conferences a year – in Spring and Winter – covering national and international topics in psychiatry and other areas, usually, but not exclusively, with a specific theme. Providing the opportunity for members and trainees to mix and reconnect with peers the conference is run over two days with a combination of CPD accredited keynote speeches, plenary and parallel workshop style sessions. Development of the programme is led by the Vice President with a team of members.
Hot Topics is a series of CPD approved meetings, organised by CPsychI to run one Thursday evening a month from September to April. Hot Topics meetings offer two presentations over two hours, with two CPD Credits. Many of the meetings are recorded and available to college members as CPD approved eModules.
