Statement

Recruitment of medical students and junior doctors into psychiatry is an important issue in many European countries. This issue is closely linked to the image of the psychiatric profession. As psychiatric trainees, we come into direct contact with medical students. EFPT, therefore, believes that psychiatric trainees should be involved in actions that can improve the image of the psychiatric profession and wants to provide a platform for the exchange of ideas and successful initiatives.
