New Consultant Initiative
The Faculty is seeking to develop an initiative to support new Sport and Exercise Medicine (SEM) consultants in their first five years of practice. This is often a challenging transitional period, particularly as SEM consultants work in a variety of settings with a wide scope of practice. The initiative aims to focus on:
(i) connecting new consultants with the faculty
(ii) providing a peer network through a supportive forum
(iii) offering specific CPD and resources for new consultants on topics such as leadership, appraisal and career development.
Other successful and similar schemes include the ‘First-Five’ committee (Royal College of General Practitioners) and Start-Well (Royal College of Psychiatrists). This will be a consultant led initiative, chaired by the FSEM new consultant representative.
As we begin building this new initiative, we are seeking to appoint three members/fellows to form a new committee. A full role description and application form can be found below.
Please only apply if you are a member/fellow of faculty and a new consultant in Sport and Exercise Medicine (SEM) (first five years since CCT/CESR) or a final year SEM trainee.
Once you have completed your application form, please return it to firstname.lastname@example.org. The closing date for applications is Friday 26 June.
