An exciting opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic and motivated trainee physician (ST4 or above) with an interest in leadership and management to join York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust as a Chief Registrar.

The Chief Registrar role provides senior higher specialty trainees with the opportunity to develop valuable skills in leadership and management, and gives them a minimum of 40% protected time to put these skills into practice by developing initiatives that address local challenges. Chief Registrars have a tangible impact on service improvement, workforce transformation, engagement and morale, and education and training, and work to deliver better outcomes for patients, colleagues and organisations.


Trainees benefit from a flexible training model that enables them to develop a portfolio of skills and experience that will benefit future consultant posts and leadership roles, and build a profile that marks them out as a future clinical leader.


The role suits trainees who:

  • Are comfortable working in uncertain environments and across traditional boundaries
  • Relish the opportunity to develop their own ideas and initiatives
  • Are committed to and passionate about improving the NHS.


Chief Registrars receive support locally from a mentor/supervisor (must be a senior clinical leader) within the organisation, and nationally from the bespoke leadership and management development programme provided by the RCP.


The RCP leadership and management development programme commences in August/September 2018 and will involve some travel. The RCP cannot reimburse travel and accommodation expenses.


Applications are open to trainee physicians:

  • At ST4 or above
  • Working full time or less-than-full-time
  • With a national training number
  • With full GMC registration.


This is a fixed-term role for minimum of 12 months. The role can be undertaken in programme or out of programme (training or experience).


Applications must be discussed with the educational supervisor and training programme director (TPD), and permission to apply must be granted by the TPD.
