The Scottish Surgical Simulation Collaborative (SSSC) is a bi-collegiate group of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (RCSEd) and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow (RCPSG). It has close ties to the Surgical Specialties Training Board (STB) of NES, established in 2012. It provides strategy and co-ordination for the proper integration of simulation into surgical training programmes in Scotland.

The group includes Training Programme Directors, Education Directors of both surgical Royal Colleges (Edinburgh and Glasgow), reps from the simulation centres including the Cuschieri Centre and the Scottish Clinical Simulation Centre, the Scottish Clinical Skills Managed Educational Network and other experts.

The two colleges are inviting applications for the new role of Chair of the Scottish Surgical Simulation Collaborative to oversee its wide range of activities. The bi-collegiate group are looking for someone to chair a number of collaborative meetings each year and to chair various subgroups and workstreams as required while promoting the groups objectives in the field of surgical simulation.

The time commitment is approximately two days a month. This is a non-remunerated post, although appropriate expenses will be reimbursed. The deadline for applications is Friday 30 August 2019. Please complete the below form and email it to Lindsey Lawson before the deadline date.
