The Federation is seeking to appoint two representatives to JRCPTB:

    Purpose and scope

    Lay involvement in the management and organisation of our work is essential.

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.

    • Providing external advice to Deaneries on quality management of training in different locations as part of the General Medical Council’s Quality Framework;
    • Recording and monitoring trainees’ progress and making recommendations for the award of specialty certification;
    • External stakeholder management through the work of Speciality Advisory Committees;
    • International Development activities.
