Gain first-hand experience of leadership

We are currently accepting applications for the Lady Estelle Wolfson Emerging Leaders Fellowship submission date closes Sunday 18 October 2020, midnight.

The Lady Estelle Wolfson Emerging Leaders Fellowship was developed to encourage women to apply for senior and leadership roles in the RCS and in surgery by providing opportunities to get involved with RCS activity. This year-long fellowship gives you access to RCS Council and Committee meetings, exposes you to leadership roles and gives you the confidence to apply for them in the future. 

The programme comprises of seven days of activity, spread across the year covering a range of meetings. The programme will be tailored to each participant's interests. 

The scheme has been generously supported by Lady Estelle Wolfson (Chair of The Lord Leonard and Lady Estelle Wolfson Foundation).

The year-long fellowship includes various activities throughout the year: 

  • Induction day 
  • Leadership workshop day
  • Three committee meetings (e.g. RCS committees, SAC meetings)
  • RCS Council meeting
  • Evaluation day

You will also be allocated a Council link who will act as an informal mentor, offering advice, guidance and support on any matters you encounter throughout the year. We try to assign each Council link by specialty or region where possible.

Travel expenses will be covered in accordance with the RCS policy.
