Nominations open for the 2023 Trainees’ Committee Elections

The RCSEd is recruiting new members for the Trainees’ Committee from within the UK-based surgical trainee membership of the College. Up to three vacancies will be up for election in 2023.

This is an opportunity to join a vibrant and energised group of surgical trainees who over the years have driven change and achieved significant success in areas of trainee life for the betterment of our membership and trainees everywhere. The Trainees’ Committee informs College Council on relevant education, training and examination issues from a trainee’s perspective.

The time commitment for membership of the Trainees’ Committee is approximately twelve to fifteen days per year, depending on College and external activities.

The positions will be for an initial period of two years with an opportunity to extend the term for a further 12 months.

Applications are now closed. If you have any enquiries please email
