About the SFO UK Academic Representative Role

There are 2 posts as Academic Representative representing two different levels of training.

The first of these is a the Foundation Academic Representative. This is typically an Foundation doctor who is undertaking an academic foundation programme undertaking ENT research/project work. The second of these is the Core Trainee Academic Representative who is ideally (but not necessarily) taking the Academic Clinical Fellowship (ACF) post as an ENT-run through.

You role will be similar for the regional representatives (see description on respective page) but focused on the academic ENT career path rather than any particular geographical locale. It will therefore cover trainees from around the country seeing questions about academic ENT. You are encouraged to organise events, talks, etc. with regards to academic ENT as standalone or in conjunction with other ENT events/surgical events.

For more information please see the following;Job Description Academic FY or Job Description Academic CT .

What benefits can I expect as a SFO UK representative?

As per the regional representatives:

  • Certificate or other formal letter of recognition for their contribution to a national society upon completion of their posts. This can serve as evidence as commitment to surgery/ENT and evidence for leadership and management skills.
  • Supported development as a leader and manager. The committee will support you throughout your time in this role.
  • You will have the opportunity to network with like-minded ENT trainees and consultants.
