Function

The Trainees’ Committee is a forum for discussion of issues relevant to training in obstetrics and gynaecology as well as wider issues relevant to the profession. The Committee acts as a channel for communication between Trainees and Council and other relevant committees, including outside organisations such as the Academy Trainee Doctors’ Group and the British Medical Association’s Junior Doctors’ Committee. The Trainees’ Committee organises an annual meeting for Trainees, contributes to College newsletters, elects Trainees to sit on Council and asks members to take responsibility for certain areas from time to time.
 

Additional information

Definition of a Trainee Representative on the Trainees’ Committee

A Trainee who wishes to be elected onto the Trainees’ Committee must be a doctor resident in the British Isles who:

  • Has an NTN and is on the Trainees’ Register; and
  • Has a minimum of 2 years of training (WTE) remaining in respect of their projected CCT date at the time of election

Election of members

The election process starts with a call for nominations, which is sent out to Trainees in the deanery by email. If more than 1 candidate is nominated, an election takes place by ballot (via an online voting system) organised by the College.

Candidates should be nominated by 2 Trainees from their deanery; however, self-nomination is acceptable. All Trainees within the deanery are eligible to vote. The Trainee who records the highest number of votes will be elected for a period of 3 years.

Should the elected representative have less than 3 (but more than 2) years remaining in respect of their CCT date, their period of representation will cease on their CCT date.

The Committee will submit nominations to the President for the post of Chair. Tenure of office for the Chair shall be for up to 3 years.

A Trainee appointed to a non-training post during their period of office will be required to demit office at the end of the next Committee meeting.

Elections for vacant posts are listed on Trainees' Committee Elections.
