Clinical Oncology Equivalence Committee

Two vacancies

Deadline for application: 27 October 2017

Applications are invited from Fellows of the Faculty of Clinical Oncology in good standing with the RCR, resident in the UK and in active clinical practice in a substantive NHS consultant post, to join the Clinical Oncology Equivalence Committee. 

The Equivalence Committee evaluates applications for GMC specialist registration from doctors who are not eligible for specialist registration through a CCT or through EEA rights. Successful applicants are awarded a CESR (Certificate of Eligibility of Specialist Registration).  Information available to potential applicants is on our website applying for a CESR. Applications are measured against the current CCT curriculum.

There are two vacancies available. The term of the posts is for an initial four years beginning as soon as possible.  There is the option to extend this for a second four year term.  

Applicants must demonstrate an interest in and experience in clinical oncology training in the UK (for example, by holding or having held a post as a training programme director, regional specialty adviser, College tutor or similar, or by being a member of a relevant College committee).

The Equivalence Committee meets on an ad hoc basis at the RCR when an application is received - usually no more than twice per year. Members are welcome to attend meetings in person, but joining by telephone conference is also possible. Members may also be asked to comment on matters relevant to the Equivalence Committee or CESR process as these arise. Please see the Terms of Reference for the time commitment required and check with your employer that they will allow you the time to participate before you apply. The College will send a letter of support to your employer if necessary.

For further information about the role and the work of the committee please read the Terms of Reference. Should you wish to discuss the role further before applying, please contact Ruth Gibson Curriculum and Equivalence Officer or on 0207 406 5955, or the Chair of the Equivalence Committee Dr Frances Yuille, MDET, Education and Training.

To apply, please submit a short CV and a brief statement describing your particular areas of interest and experience in clinical oncology training, and any other information you consider relevant, indicating why you are interested in this role.

All applications should be emailed to Ruth Gibson by 5.00pm on 27 October 2017. Applicants will be notified of the decision shortly after that date.
