Notes for the MRCPsych Exam

These are notes used for both parts of the MRCPsych exam. They started off as notes for the part I and continued to evolve throughout study for the part II. I have therefore not made a clear distinction between the part I and part II topics.

The Basic Sciences and Clinical Curriculum can be obtained from the Royal College of Psychiatrists.

To download these files in MSWord (2000) format so that you can edit and add to them, please follow the preceeding link. You are requested to read the Terms and Conditions before editing the notes.

Although I aspire to make all the notes available online (as HTML), the workload involved will probably make this prohibitive. If you wish this, then please feel free to do it.
