Trainee Representative posts

We would like to hear from trainees interested in having an active role on the Trainees’ Advisory Committee.  The committee is made up of trainees representing all specialties, with representatives from all the College's regions. You will also be an active member of the specialty committee by participating in discussions and informing the committee of the views of the trainees in the specialty.

Why should I apply?

This is a great opportunity for you to make a difference, with a chance to collate opinions from other trainees about how your specialty is organised and share your thoughts with the College Officers.  It is also a chance for you to network with your peers, get involved with the College and support your professional development.

What roles are available?
