Can someone appear in MRCPsych paper B if she has done just MO-ship ( non-trainee) in a private sector for 12 months in psychiatry, especially if her supervisor is a Consultant registered with the Royal College of Psychiatrists?
Yes, you can as far as I understand, but you need to submit the confirmation of the following as stated on the RCPsych website :
