The Federation of the Royal Colleges of Physicians, based in the UK and with international reach, is a partnership between the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh, the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow and the Royal College of Physicians of London. The Federation is seeking to appoint three lay representatives to the MRCP(UK) examination boards and committees and seven representatives to the JRCPTB specialty advisory committees (SACs)
Lay involvement in the management and organisation of our work is essential. Lay representatives act as a ‘critical friend’, contribute experience from outside the professional group, and provide an external, non-medical perspective to the decision making process. They provide input into the external quality assurance of the examinations delivery, support the officers of their board or committee in delivering examinations and meeting the requirements set by the General Medical Council (GMC). Successful applicants will become full members of the respective boards and committees, and will actively participate in their work and projects.
Federation lay representatives are non-salaried positions although applicants should note all reasonable expenses and travel costs will be reimbursed in line with the expenses policy.
