  27. DETAILS OF CLINICAL TRAINING - descriptive Probably only necessary just after training is complete? But, if fairly junior, and unknown, here is an opportunity to give them important information Here are some excerpts from his CV

  28. ….in Bermuda I worked within a well functioning multi-disciplinary team. The post gave me excellent experience of general adult psychiatry, commonly having to treat florid and often very violent presentations of mental illness …. …..the post exposed me to a wide cross section of the elderly population varying in culture and socio-economic status. I received a good introduction to child and adolescent psychiatry, working under a systemic family therapist and psychiatrist …..

  29. ….this was also my first opportunity to carry out research. An opportunity I have embraced. My post with Professor Mann’s team was a unique and enlightening experience in how to manage patients with ‘untreatable’ neurotic illnesses…. …..I have had wide exposure to differing methods of service provision, working within different health care systems. This has allowed me a level of objectivity in assessing the proficiency of different models of health care delivery…

  30. TEACHING EXPERIENCE If you’ve been to a course on “How to teach”, start with this. But – like many of you – he has been pressed into doing some teaching anyway…..

  31. TEACHING EXPERIENCE - 1 I have been keen to teach throughout my training and find teaching very rewarding. The remit of my current post is developing primary care mental health education and training packages on a national level. This includes delivering ‘Teach the Teachers’ courses. These courses teach primary care professionals the tools for delivering effective local primary health care initiatives. This is done by …. The post also involves organising and running skills based workshops for primary care professionals and delivering lectures/teaching to uni- and multi-professional primary care workers.

  32. TEACHING EXPERIENCE - 2 My other teaching experience includes: ·Teaching and supervision of practice nurses running a depression clinic in primary care (Waller Clinic). ·I am currently a 3rd year medical student tutor for GKT Medical Schools. This involves didactic teaching, inter-active tutorials, and case-based teaching. I am also responsible for examining them. I have recently produced a video to demonstrate a psychiatric interview. ·

  33. TEACHING EXPERIENCE - 3 ·I have given talks to health professionals (nurses and occupational therapists) on how to manage difficult patients on medical wards. ·I have run study groups for psychiatric and medical SHOs/ registrars preparing for examinations. ·I help organise and teach on the MRCPsych course at the Institute of Psychiatry ·I give half-day seminars twice yearly to the international pharmaceutical industry for TPI (Teaching for the Pharmaceutical Industry), on anxiety disorders and the neuroses.

  34. RESEARCH EXPERIENCE If you’ve been to a course on any research skills, start with this. But – like many of you – he has not done any formal courses. But he is not deterred…..

  35. RESEARCH EXPERIENCE - 1 Through my experience working on the Maudsley Higher Training Scheme, I have developed a keen interest in research and have been involved in the following research projects: Completed Studies: Tomkins S., Choudhury, P., Moran, P., Mann,A., A comparison of informant and patient accounts of personality disorder. For submission to The Journal of Personality Disorders (Principal Investigator). Supervisor: Prof A Mann Pilot Study of practice nurse led walk-in depression clinics in primary care. Involved as trainer and supervisor to study practice nurses. Principal Investigator: Prof A Tylee But he is not deterred…..

  36. RESEARCH EXPERIENCE - 2 Current studies: Pathways to psychiatric and social care in the elderly. (Principal Investigator). Funded by grant from Department of Health Services Research, Institute of Psychiatry. Supervisor: Dr M Philpot Study to validate a brief personality disorder screen. (Collaborator). Involved in administering screening questionnaire and structured personality disorder assessments. Department of Health funded project. Principal Investigator- Dr P Moran; supervisor Prof A Tylee Study of mental health service use by people with personality disorder. (Collaborator). Department of Health funded project. Principal Investigator- Dr P Moran; supervisor Prof A Tylee Other research: Dissertation on a History of Pernicious Anaemia, catalogued at Wellcome Institute for History of Medicine library.

  37. CAREER AIMS My major interest is in primary care psychiatry. In the short term I want to consolidate my teaching and research skills and intend to do this by applying for a research training fellowship and undertaking a higher degree focusing on an aspect of primary care mental health i.e. treatment resistant depression in primary care. In the longer term, I wish to pursue a career in academic psychiatry in the field of primary care mental health

  38. PUBLICATIONS List full references to REFEREED journal articles, which have either appeared or are “in Press” Do NOT describe papers that are “submitted” If you have other publications, list them separately. (Chapters, books, other..) Ask whether they would like to see articles that are “in press”, and bring them with you to the interview if selected.

  39. But he didn’t have ANY of these.So this is what he said: ‘Diagnosing Depression’ and ‘Managing Depression’ in General Practitioner, ‘Schizophrenia’ in Royal College of General Practitioners Handbook, 2003 (in press) ‘Depression’ editorial in Hospital Medicine (in press) Tomkins S, Tylee AT. ‘Mood disorders in primary care. In Press. ‘Treatment Resistant Depression’ in Hospital Doctor. In Press. So ,what is missing here?

  40. Adapt your CV to your seniority JUNIOR Can include prizes at school & university Tell them as much good about yourself as possible SENIOR What will you achieve if appointed? Will you obtain grants in competition? Are you slowing up in productivity?

  41. The CV used to illustrate this lecture is 8 pages long
