AiT Committee Roles and responsibilities Terms of reference


Who are the national AiT Committee

The AiT Committee is a group of trainee GPs whose aim is to give AiTs a voice in the development of policy, present and future initiatives in relation to GP training and membership.

The Committee is made up of a representative from each deanery within the GP training system. They are also supported by the Chair of the GP Trainee subcommittee and a member of COGPED.

The Chair and Deputy Chair of the Committee are elected by the current or outgoing Committee members annually. Both hold a seat on Council the national decision making body within the RCGP.


What has the AiT Committee achieved

Since the national AiT Committee was founded in 2007, it has helped to shape many areas of the RCGP, by providing ideas, suggestions and plans from a trainee point-of-view. This is of vital importance and the MRCGP is a very different assessment as a result of this work.

The representatives also sit on other committees, such as RCGP Council and the Postgraduate Training Board, as well as representation on external committees, enabling the views of RCGP AiTs to be heard on these groups.
