What the RCP does for trainees

Trainees are the future of our profession and the NHS, and the RCP offers resources and support across a range of areas.

Supporting trainees

Representing trainees

Trainees Committee

The RCP Trainees Committee (TC) is composed entirely of medical trainees at several levels of training from each deanery across England, Wales and Northern Ireland, and is here to represent your views at the RCP and the organisations it interacts with.

We meet three times a year and also conduct discussions among ourselves and with RCP senior officers, including the president, vice presidents and registrar. 

The TC has contributed to a number of projects, including work on acute services, shaping the future workforce and shape of training, and has organised the RCP’s first dedicated trainee conference.

Training and development opportunities

Flexible portfolio training

Flexible portfolio training (FPT) is a new ST3 training scheme run by the Royal College of Physicians and Health Education England that protects 1 day a week (or 20% time equivalent) for professional development.
