About Andrew Iles

After a degree in English I studied medicine at the University of Birmingham Medical School. I trained as a GP and was a partner in general practice before changing to psychiatry. My registrar rotation was based at Charing Cross Hospital and my higher training at the Royal London Hospital. I was appointed as a consultant in adult general psychiatry for Berkshire and South Oxfordshire in 1992 and now work in West Berkshire. On several occasions I was senior organiser of the Royal College of Psychiatrists clinical examinations at Fair Mile Hospital, then as the system changed I became an examiner of the OSCE (objective structured clinical examinations) and now of the CASC (clinical assessment of skills and competencies). Many trainees have been attached to my firm over the years and most have been successful in their examinations. As a trainer I am particularly interested in interviewing skills, which so important in psychiatry and in the whole of medicine.
