The MAPT is a full member of the EFPT which is an independent federation of psychiatric trainees associations. The MAPT supports the EFPT’s goals which are:
- To explore the diversity and richness of current training of psychiatrists in Europe;
- To support the development of national trainees’ organizations in all European countries;
- To promote and represent internationally the views of the trainees in all branches of psychiatry;
- To translate the discussion of trainees into action at a local level to improve training.
The MAPT was represented during the 26th EFPT Forum in Bristol by Dr Giovanni Grech and Dr Fabrizia Cassar. During the forum Dr Giovanni Grech took the role of EFPT Exchange Co-Chair. The MAPT will be preparing their Exchange program and hopes to launch it in spring 2019.
