International Faculty representatives

International Faculty Representatives, is a new initiative within the International Department to engage UK faculties with International work.

The role profile is detailed below and the International Department is accepting volunteers to take on this role for their faculty. 

International Faculty Representatives foster engagement and communication between their faculty and the International Department and International Committee. They provide two-way linking, providing information to our team, and receiving information given to them, then communicating it to GPs registered with their local faculty. 

It's an important role, because it ensures the RCGP International team are aware of the international links and working that faculties are engaged in. It also allows us to engage GPs who want to work internationally, and get those with expertise involved in our work.
