Faculty News

Our next AGM and Faculty Awards Evening will be held on Thursday 4 May 2017.  Further details to follow. 

About us

We support over 4000 members, Fellows, Associates and Associates in Training in Birmingham, Coventry, Dudley, Hereford, Sandwell, Shropshire, Solihull, Staffordshire, Walsall, Warwickshire, Wolverhampton and Worcester.

We are proud to be the designated faculty supporting military GPs applying for Fellowship, many of whom are stationed abroad and don’t have a ‘home’ faculty.

Getting Involved

We rely on members to play an active role locally, promoting the College aims and objectives. It is essential to raise and maintain awareness of demographic issues and needs of GPs and patients alike, and develop initiatives to support these.

We currently have district rep vacancies for Sandwell and Wolverhampton and AiT vacancies for Dudley, Hereford, Sandwell, Shropshire, Solihull, Walsall and Wolverhampton.

Faculty board meeting dates for 2017/18 are as follows:

Thursday 2 February 2017
Thursday 04 May 2017
Thursday 06 July 2017 
Thursday 21 September 2017
Thursday 09 November 2017
Thursday 06 February 2018

If you would like to find out more about becoming involved with the faculty we would be delighted to hear from you.

Faculty Events

We organise a large number of educational events including monthly CPD evenings, AiT starters and leavers conference as well as our successful annual Research & Innovation Symposium and our biennial Robin Pinsent Memorial Lecture.

We also hold ‘Understanding the CSA’ courses for trainers; and AiTs can take part in the Faculty’s ‘Trainees in Need’ programme which offers help in preparing for the CSA.

Details of forthcoming Midland Faculty meetings, social events and educational courses can be accessed via the Upcoming Events box below.
