Your Development

AMP Training

NHS Education for Scotland (NES) has assumed responsibility for all Approved Medical Practitioner (AMP) training with effect from 12 September 2017.  Since then NES has developed course materials to enable the training needs for prospective AMPs to be met.  NES has also established a new faculty group to deliver this course and ensure materials are kept updated and fit for purpose.

 

Initial Training

For all new AMP's, Initial training is carried out in two parts:

  • An online module via TURAS Learn
  • A face-to-face training course

For more information, and information on how to book, please click on this link.

 

Update Training

For existing AMP's, from 1 January 2020 it will be mandatory to have completed Update training every five years after initial AMP training.  This requires existing AMP's to complete the following modules:

  • All AMP's to complete Core and Capacity training
  • Forensic psychiatrists to complete additional Forensic training module
  • Child and adolescent psychiatrists to complete additional CAMHS training module
