Calling all Paediatric Emergency Medicine trainees

Date published: Jun 12, 2024, 10:33 AM

Summary

The Committee for Joint College Training in Paediatric Emergency Medicine seeks expressions of interest from first year PEM Advanced Trainees to join as the Advanced Trainee Representative.

Description

The College recognises that trainees, as future Fellows of the College, have a very important role in the College’s training program. As such, the College involves trainees in all aspects of its complex governance as representatives of their fellow trainees.

This is a great opportunity if you are willing to share your perspectives from a trainee’s view as you will assist in communication between the CJCT and Advanced Trainees.  

Being an Advanced Trainee (AT) Representative will also allow you to be involved and understand how the training committee make decisions to support individual trainees’ progression throughout the course of their training. 

Overall, the roles/responsibilities of the Trainee Representative include but are not limited to:

  • Commitment to regular attendance at meetings of the Committee;
  • Providing trainee perspectives to the issues of concern;
  • Representing trainees’ interests;
  • Advocating on behalf of trainees.

The CJCT holds 1 face-to-face meeting (usually in March) and up to 3 video conferences a year.

Members are appointed to the Committee for an initial 3-year term with the option to renew for a further term or until the Advanced Trainee becomes eligible for Fellowship.
