The Maudsley Training Programme

The Maudsley Training Programme (MTP) encompasses a number of postgraduate training programmes in psychiatry.

The programme offers a wide range of clinical posts and teaching programmes delivered by experienced clinical and academic trainers, giving doctors in training options to tailor their training experience to meet their individual needs and preferences.

The Maudsley has always been synonymous with clinical and academic excellence in psychiatry and is internationally recognised as a centre for high quality, reliable psychiatric training, with an established track record of Maudsley trained alumni successfully securing senior clinical and academic posts, both nationally and internationally.

The MTP, based at South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, is commissioned by Health Education England (HEE) to run the following programmes with our partner Trusts Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust and South West London and St George’s Mental Health Trust:
