Regional Surgical Ambassadors

The RSAs are accessible to all Fellows and Members, as well as Student, Foundation and pre-MRCS Affiliates for support and advice.

Our RSA Network is spread throughout England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Over the last three years the RSAs have hosted a number of regional activities for Fellows, Members and Affiliates to attend, including regional forums where attendees discuss important issues with the President, Office Bearers and their RSAs.

Your RSA acts as a conduit of information to and from the College and can provide support and guidance on the following:

  • Any new College developments or initiatives
  • Career advice and support
  • Details on e-logbook and e-portfolio
  • Updates on professional issues
  • How to access College awards, grants and bursaries
  • Advice on MRCS and Fellowship Examinations
  • Information on upcoming courses, CPD and educational events
