The 3 years of CAMHS training usually include spending 2 years in community placements and 1 year in an in-patient setting. There may be two 6 month placements if the rotations are in a specialised setting. Choosing mix of both rural and urban placements will help to gain most exposure. The first year placement is usually in the community with the 2nd or 3rd year in in-patient settings. All preferences will be considered when rotations are allocated, however ST6 trainees will be prioritised.
