The Royal College of Physicians’ (RCP’s) chief registrar scheme is open for applications. Chief registrars are aspiring clinical leaders who have protected time (minimum 40%) to develop their skills in leadership, management and quality improvement (QI), and work on local initiatives that address key challenges their organisations face. This includes:

  • Improving services and outcomes for patients
  • Education and training
  • Morale and engagement
  • Workforce issues and quality of working lives.

The chief registrar role is a senior leadership role that can be undertaken by trainee doctors (ST4 and above) for a minimum of 12 months, in programme or out of programme (training or experience).

There will be a post available at Barts Health for 2018/19.

  • 1 year post from August 2018
  • Must be an NTN holding trainee and ideally St5 or higher
  • 50% management/Chief Reg responsibility and 50% clinical
  • It can be done in programme or as an OOP – would need discussing with TPD of course
  • If interested please contact Dr Will Ricketts for more information

Chief registrars benefit from:

Mentoring and support

Mentoring from a local senior clinical leader, access to senior management, and support from the RCP and the chief registrar alumni network, ensures that chief registrars are supported to navigate the complex NHS system and succeed in leading positive change.

RCP chief registrar development programme

Chief registrars receive a 10 month training programme* that supports them in their role and builds skills that will prove valuable for future consultant job applications, such as change management, team development, leadership and quality improvement. There are additional opportunities to showcase project work, raise your profile locally and nationally as an emerging leader, and network with NHS leaders.
