The Thought Broadcast is a regular podcast linked to the RANZCP’s journal, Australasian Psychiatry. It is produced by psychiatry trainees, for trainees, with a particular focus on the Scholarly Project and trainee research.The Thought Broadcast primarily aims to demystify the Scholarly Project and humanise research by sharing the trainee experience. We will focus on some of the stories behind successful projects, including how the authors came up with ideas and transformed these into published research. Additionally, to complement the podcast series and better support trainees, we will hear from consultant psychiatrists who are experienced in publishing and research, and in supervising and examining the Scholarly Project. As The Thought Broadcast develops, we hope to expand the podcast to discuss a wide range of research-related content with other trainees and early career psychiatrists. We hope that The Thought Broadcast can be an interactive experience with trainees from across Australia and New Zealand getting involved, and shaping the podcast in the direction that will benefit them the most.

    An Interview with Zoe Kristensen and Theo McTigue: “(In)Visible Me”

    An Interview with Zoe Kristensen and Theo McTigue: “(In)Visible Me”

    Dr Zoe Kristensen and Dr Theo McTigue are pioneers. As trans and non-binary people respectively, they are living, working, and training openly in psychiatry. In years gone by, and indeed even now, there are risks associated with this visibility. Zoe and Theo explore these in depth; being pathologized, excluded, and othered. They also speak to signals of change and of allies in unexpected places. This conversation should encourage trainees and fellows of any gender to ask, if they don’t know of any trans or non-binary trainees, why is that? Zoe and Theo were interviewed by Associate Trainee Editor Michael Weightman and Trainee Editor Oliver Robertson at Congress 2022, Sydney.

    An Interview with Sonja Cabarkapa: “Think Globally, Act Locally”

    An Interview with Sonja Cabarkapa: “Think Globally, Act Locally”

    Starting her family in Europe, Dr Sonja Cabarkapa is taking an international approach to her psychiatry training. This requires a positive mindset and determination, both of which she employed when completing her scholarly project on profiling absconders from public and private wards in Australia. While Sonja has a global attitude to life and training, her research has a distinctly local focus. The idea forming in the aftermath of a critical incident, and the subsequent work driven by a desire to understand the factors contributing to its occurrence.  Sonja describes how research born of clinical experience comes naturally, that the skills required to complete a study are transferrable to exams, and the unexpected sense of comradery she found in more menial aspects of the work. Sonja is interviewed by Associate Trainee Editor Michael Weightman, Deputy Editor Andrew Amos and Trainee Editor Oliver Robertson.

    An Interview with Skye Kinder: “No Taxation without Representation”

    Further exploring the fallout of the aborted November 2021 Audio-Visual Objective Structured Clinical Examination (AVOSCE), this episode of The Thought Broadcast considers the trainee perspective. The panel speaks to Dr Skye Kinder, a strong trainee advocate and former member of the Trainee Representative Committee (TRC).
    Dr Kinder discusses the impact of the AVOSCE cancellation on trainees (especially women), perceptions of the College’s response, and constructive criticisms of the path forward around assessment. Dr Kinder also provides context behind the unprecedented mass resignation of TRC members, and identifies opportunities for enhancing the voice of trainees within the College in future.
    Dr Kinder was interviewed on 17th December 2021 by Trainee Editor Oliver Robertson, and Associate Trainee Editors Bryan Bui and Michael Weightman.
    Thanks to Deputy Editor Andrew Amos for acting as producer on this episode.

    An Interview with Nick O’Connor: “Examining the Examiner”

    An Interview with Nick O’Connor: “Examining the Examiner”

    Following a series of podcasts exploring trainees’ experiences of the Scholarly Project assessment task, the latest episode of The Thought Broadcast shifts focus to the Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE). In response to the imbroglio arising from the failed delivery of the November 2021 audiovisual OSCE, we speak to Dr Nick O’Connor – RANZCP board member, and Chair of the Education Committee.
    Dr O’Connor provides candid responses to questions relating to how and why the AVOSCE was abandoned, as well as updating listeners on alternative assessment pathways for affected candidates.
    Dr O’Connor also addressed broader issues around bottlenecks in trainee progression to Fellowship and how the recently commissioned Australian Council for Education Research report may shape the future of RANZCP assessments.
    Dr O’Connor is interviewed by Trainee Editor Oliver Robertson, Associate Trainee Editors Bryan Bui and Michael Weightman, and Deputy Editor Andrew Amos.
    (Note: this interview was recorded on 10th December 2021, prior to the Australian Medical Council’s response to the RANZCP’s alternative assessment proposals).
