The group also create teaching resources with the support of the International Committee. These teaching resources have been developed to support Fellows working and volunteering in low- to middle-income countries. Access to these resources can be applied for using this form.
The International Committee is a cross-faculty group focused on encouraging, assisting and developing overseas projects and support. The committee meets several times a year to discuss the International Fellowship, endorsed projects and other issues relating to global healthcare.
International Committee members are experienced philanthropic volunteers with a keen interest in the RCR’s global efforts overseas. They also give time to maintain website resources, and network with others to expand the cohort of volunteers within the RCR’s membership.
