About RCS Faculty
Faculty members help to develop, manage and teach all RCS courses, usually on a voluntary basis. Their knowledge and expertise is crucial in allowing us to deliver cutting-edge training to over 11,000 course participants every year throughout the UK and abroad.

We appoint Clinical Leads when we looking for specific expertise either to review a specialty portfolio or as part of a project. The expertise can range from specialty specific to digital learning to assessment to human factors and beyond.
Education Clinical Leads’ time is ‘bought out’ from their employer and the amount of time and way it is agreed depends on the specific project.
Our Course Directors take responsibility for the day-to-day running of one or several RCS courses. They work as volunteers.
Working in collaboration with the wider RCS teams, the Course Director is consulted on aspects of a course, from setting dates to monitoring faculty and finalising the course programme.
RCS Faculty Members make up the largest group in our faculty body.
Faculty Members voluntarily give up their time to attend and take part in the teaching on courses.
They play a vital role in the delivery of courses and their contributions and feedback are essential in the ongoing development of each course.
Post-course evaluation for faculty members
We ask all faculty members to complete a short evaluation (SCOPE) form after taking part in an RCS course.
This is a chance for you to anonymously share your honest feedback, which is invaluable in helping us to improve and continue to develop all RCS courses.
