Emergency Medicine Trainees' Association (EMTA) - ACCS Trainee Reps

Please note it is our intention to recruit two successful candidates to this post to work together and share the roles described. 

The ACCS programme has been a pivotal development in recruitment to Emergency Medicine and the associated specialties. The programme and the curriculum are overseen by the Inter Collegiate ACCS Training Committee (ICACCST). The exams specific to specialisation in Emergency Medicine are overseen by the Exams Committee of the Royal College of Emergency Medicine, together with the GMC. 

We are looking for two applicants to join the Emergency Medicine Trainees’ Association as ACCS trainee rep to ICACCST and the RCEM Exams Committee. This is a fantastic opportunity for two hard working candidates with an interest in taking an active role in national level strategy and delivery for this core part of the cross-specialty training programme. 

The successful applicants would hold additional responsibilities within EMTA including attendance at quarterly meetings and offer assistance in other matters pertaining to EMTA activity and trainee representation. In particular, candidates are requested to specify if they hold any other interests or skills pertinent to the functioning of EMTA, including in design and online communications. Successful applicants would be expected to contribute the EMJ supplement at least once per year on an issue relevant to their representative role. 

ICACCST meets four times per year with an additional morning meeting on one of these days to discuss the curriculum rewrite. The Exams Committee also meets four times per year, with an HST EMTA Representative also attending. As a trainee representative you will provide insight into the trainee perspective on matters arising, maintain vigilance for policy which may have adverse outcomes to trainees generally or minority trainee sub-groups (e.g. LTFT, dual trained, protected characteristics) and advocate for changes which can improve the quality and equitability of training delivery in the UK for all trainees. The candidate would be expected to be present at ICACCST and the RCEM Exams Committee to represent all ACCS trainees and, in doing so, abide by the EMTA and RCEM Codes of Conduct, including the requirement to maintain regular communication with the EMTA Committee and be responsive to requests and feedback. Additional roles and responsibilities to best utilise areas of the applicant’s interest will be discussed on an individual basis with successful applicants. 

The work commitment would be shared between the two successful applicants and thus be expected to average out to approximately 1-2 hours per week. As per RCEM Guidance, departments would be expected to support formal commitments via Professional Leave. The post is honorary.  Reasonable expenses for travel and subsistence will be payable in accordance with College policy.
