New Diploma Level Examiners
The College seeks to appoint new examiners for the launch of several new Diploma level examinations in 2024.
The examinations will complement the existing Diploma in Special Care Dentistry and Diploma in Implant Dentistry. They are intended to be a summative assessment of applied clinical knowledge, clinical reasoning, and problem-solving skills at a sub-specialist level (equivalent to Tier 2 complexity as described in the NHS England document ‘Guides for Commissioning Dental Specialties’). The examinations will be accessible to all registered dentists, with no restrictive eligibility requirements. The examinations will consist of single best answers and clinical scenario papers and examiners will be expected to contribute to the question banks.
Applications are currently invited for Examiners in:
These examiner roles are ideally suited to early career Members and Fellows wishing to get involved in the College and to develop an active role in the development of their profession. Consideration will also be given to non-specialist Affiliates/Associates/Members with relevant, demonstrable experience considered acceptable to the relevant Specialty Board. Examiner and question writing training will be provided.
- Be registered with the General Dental Council or equivalent and be in good standing
- Be either an Affiliate, Associate, Member, or Fellow of the College in good standing, or be a Member or Fellow of one of the other Royal Colleges in good standing and be willing to affiliate with RCSEd
- Have at least 4 years experience of working in the relevant discipline
A commitment of a minimum of three days per year, including examiner training, is anticipated. In keeping with the charitable status of the College no remuneration is made for participation in examinations, however examiners will be reimbursed for travel, subsistence and accommodation whilst engaged in College business.
