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.
