The New South Wales Association of Psychiatry Trainees (NAPT) is a not-for-profit organisation which aims to represent, support and advocate for psychiatry trainees in NSW.

Our committee comprises elected NSW psychiatry trainees and includes representatives from each training network and subspecialty advanced training program. We also have liaison members from the Branch Training Committee (BTC), Psychiatry State Training Council (PSTC) and Trainee Representative Committee (TRC).

In 2015 we hosted several events including the Inaugural Welcome Drinks, Academic Symposium, and Advanced Training and Subspecialty Information Night. We hope to bring psychiatry trainees together at a range of social, educational and information events each year.

Professor The Honourable Dame Marie Bashir AD, CVO has honoured NAPT by agreeing to act as our patron.

NAPT is open to all accredited psychiatry trainees in NSW, and other applicants upon consideration by the committee. Membership is free and new members are always welcome. Please sign up on our membership page and join our Facebook group.

NAPT Mentoring Project

The NAPT Mentoring Project is a 6 month project funded by HETI to assess the effect of formal mentoring on trainees. 

Applications are now open for the 2019 NAPT Mentoring Project! The Project, supported by HETI and the RANZCP NSW Branch, will give trainees access to a psychiatrist mentor for a six-month period. After the initial introduction event on July 25, the location, frequency, and goals of the mentoring sessions will be completely up to you and your mentor.

This is a unique opportunity to network with senior colleagues, access professional guidance towards achieving long-term career goals, and to discuss your training and development with a non-supervising consultant. There are no assessments and no expectations. This is just time for you to focus on being the kind of psychiatrist you want to be.

Numbers are strictly limited. Please register your interest HERE or send any further enquiries to
