Voluntary
Job description

Are you interested in healthcare? Pathologists are either doctors or scientists who are experts in diagnosing illness and disease together with supporting the treatment of patients throughout their life.  At the Royal College of Pathologists, we have members from 17 diverse pathology specialities working mainly in hospitals and universities across the UK. We regard lay input as essential to our work in setting standards for training and high quality practice of pathology.

We are expanding our lay network by two additional posts, for three years in the first instance, within the College’s lay network of volunteer members.

Learning and Examinations (Post 1)

This role will involve working with the e-Learning Team responsible for exams and professional curricula and would suit an individual with a background in education or healthcare.

Governance and Ethics (Post 2)

This role will focus on data handling and governance issues in the emerging areas of digital pathology and genomic testing, and would suit an individual with a background in ethics or governance.

Candidates are invited to apply for either or both posts. 

Selection will be by application and interview, and full induction will be given on appointment.  Lay Member posts are not remunerated, but all expenses are covered.

If you would like to speak to someone about the role or request full details and an application pack, please contact Shelaine Kissoon at the College or via the application link.

The Royal College of Pathologists understands the value and strength that diversity brings and we are proud to be an organisation of members from a wide range of backgrounds. We are keen to encourage and enable more people of all identities and from all backgrounds to become involved in the College.
