The CPFT Core Psychiatry Training Course is a new programme that will run over 2 years, starting from 20 Feb 2024 onwards, for core trainees working across Cambridge, Huntingdon, The Fens or Peterborough. Each year has 3 terms composed of 8 weeks each. The teaching will be run in person for the whole day on Tuesdays at Victoria House in Fulbourn.
