Vacancies for Regional Directors
The role of the Regional Director is to lead the RCS's local engagement with members, fellows, other surgeons and key stakeholder groups in the region, help implement professional standards and thus improve surgical care, and facilitate local support for members and fellows.
The Regional Director chairs the local RCS Regional Board, and provides leadership to the local Regional Specialty Professional Advisors (RSPAs) and Surgical Tutors (STs).
"This has been a rewarding opportunity for me to engage with medical students, trainees, surgeons and healthcare providers. As a spokesperson for my region I have been influential in implementing a successful programme of Never Event forums and Surgical Tutor inductions at the RCS. My role as Chair of the Regional Committee has opened up further opportunities, and most recently, I coordinated a visit to Sri Lanka to train international surgeons in RCS courses."
