Clinical Radiology Equivalence Committee

One vacancy

Deadline for application: deadline Friday 5 January 2018

Applications are invited from Fellows of the Faculty of Clinical Radiology 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 Radiology 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. Applications are measured against the current CCT curriculum. Successful applicants are awarded a CESR (Certificate of Eligibility of Specialist Registration). Information available to potential applicants for a CESR can be seen here.

The Equivalence Committee meets monthly at the RCR, although members usually attend these on a rota basis. Members are welcome to attend meetings in person, but can join by telephone conference if preferred. 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 is happy to send a letter of support to your employer if necessary. Meeting dates for the coming year are available on request from Ruth Gibson.

There is one vacancy available. The term of the post 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 and experience in clinical radiology 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). It would be especially useful for applicants to have experience of interventional radiology subspecialty training, as the committee also evaluates applications for subspecialty recognition, but this is not a pre-requisite for an application.

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 email Ruth Gibson in the first instance.

To apply, please submit a short CV and a brief statement describing your particular areas of interest and experience in clinical radiology 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 Friday 5 January 2018.  Applicants will be notified of the decision shortly after that date.
