RCP Launchpad

Essential resources for new consultants and SAS doctors.

RCP Launchpad brings together information, tips and guidance into one resource to help new consultants and SAS doctors grow into excellent educators, trainers and autonomous medical practitioners. 

This resource is a membership benefit for RCP subscribing members and fellows. Working to support new consultants and SAS doctors working towards autonomous practice, RCP Launchpad will evolve over time, being updated with new content as further resources, toolkits, videos and more become available.

Whether you’re in the throes of applying for a job, have just been appointed, or been in post for a year and considering your future career development, this unique resource is for you.

RCP Launchpad has been developed by the RCP New Consultants Committee, RCP deputy registrar and Linacre fellow. Through a series of unique, bite-sized videos they share their own experiences in this resource as well as identifying the key things that new consultants and SAS doctors need to know.
