RCP seeks clinical fellow in health inequality

The Royal College of Physicians is searching for a trainee doctor to join the policy and campaigns team as a clinical fellow in health inequality.

Reducing health inequality - unfair and avoidable differences in health across the population, and between different groups within society – is one of our four policy and campaigns priorities. Our recent work has included establishing the advisory group on health inequality and convening the Inequalities in Health Alliance.

This is a new role and an opportunity for a trainee doctor to help their colleagues address health inequality in their everyday practice.  They will work with the student and foundation doctors, trainee doctors, and new consultants to develop practical advice and guidance for doctors.

The advice and guidance is likely to involve a mixture of written, audio-visual and interactive resources. The outcome of the work will be that these groups report being better able to address health inequality in their daily practice.

This is a two year, part time role for an RCP trainee member at ST3 or above. You may be based in London or Liverpool, where our two main sites are, or anywhere else in the UK. You will be happy to work remotely and be prepared to travel.

For more information, please read the clinical fellow (health inequality) role description below. If you have any questions, please feel free to email Dan Sumners, head of policy and campaigns, via dan.sumners@rcplondon.ac.uk.

To apply, please send your CV and a covering letter of no more than two A4 pages to policy@rcplondon.ac.uk. Your letter should explain what skills, experience and interests you have that make you the right person to help us with this work. We particularly encourage applications from women; people who are from a black, Asian or other minority ethnic background; and disabled people.

Please submit your application by the end of Sunday 31 January. Interviews will take place in mid to late February. The successful candidate will begin the role by the end of April 2021 – we will agree an exact date that works for them and the RCP.
