Building on our successful Chief Registrar Scheme in Medicine we are looking to appoint Chief Registrars in Medicine and Chief Registrars Emergency Departments.
The Chief Registrar role provides senior trainees with 50% protected time to develop skills and confidence in leadership, management and quality improvement. Learning that Chief Registrars gain from the Royal College of Physicians’ (RCP’s) bespoke development programme will be put into practice in a supported environment that provides autonomy, flexibility and support to develop projects that address key local challenges and priorities. This may include improvement in services, engagement and morale, education and training, workforce, and sustainability.

The Chief Registrar will be mentored by a senior clinical leader within the organisation and gain a unique insight into NHS leadership and management processes, as well as deeper knowledge of NHS structures and stakeholders.
The Chief Registrar will be expected to attend modules delivered as part of the RCP’s bespoke development programme, which will cover, for example, change management, team culture and development, quality improvement, leadership, influencing and personal resilience.
