Apply to join a Royal College committee
The Royal College is recruiting to fill positions on 12 of our governing committees for terms beginning in February 2023. Current opportunities exist with committees that focus on specialty education standards, assessment, accreditation, research, health policy and more.
Committees are essential to the Royal College. They guide and direct our organization and they make an indelible impact on residents, Fellows and the communities they serve. I hope you will consider applying. The deadline is November 6, 2022.
