Clinical Fellow – RCOG COVID-19 Response

We are seeking a new Co-developer for the RCOG COVID-19 guidance to work with an established team to maintain and deliver a suite of guidance for healthcare professionals, as well as pregnant women and their families.

We believe this role would suit trainees already on Out Of Programme activities, or those who are able to negotiate time away from clinical duties. For example, individuals that have been advised not to work in frontline roles because of clinical vulnerability to COVID-19 or late pregnancy.

The RCOG are able to support any required negotiations with employers.

The successful applicant will be required to attend the 2 weekly remote meetings, which last 1 hour each.

Outside of these meetings they will be required to work with the team to review literature, update guidance and the related information for the public, support responding to enquiries to the dedicated inbox and related tasks.

We are flexible in terms of when these tasks are carried out depending on individual circumstances.

We anticipate the level of commitment required is the equivalent of 1 day per week.

Duration and dates of appointment: Flexible, but expected to be up to 6 months.


About the role

In response to COVID-19, the RCOG, in partnership with stakeholders - has developed a suite of guidance across maternity and gynaecology to support its Fellows and Members to continue to deliver high quality care.

The changing infection rate and policy context across the devolved nations has meant this guidance requires regular review and update, together with an integrated approach to communications including a central email inbox, press and social media.

We are seeking a new Clinical Fellow who has the capacity to work with the College on this important work.

Please note, this is an honorary role which is not remunerated.


As the ideal candidate, you will:

  • Either Specialist in Obstetrics and Gynaecology with substantive UK NHS practice OR Speciality Trainee in Obstetrics and Gynaecology at ST3 level or above.
  • Have capacity to contribute to this work
  • Have experience in academic writing evidenced by postgraduate research degree and/or academic publications
