RCVS Fellowship seeking candidates to apply for expert panels

The Fellowship is looking for veterinary surgeons to apply to join its Fellowship Credentials Panels and Scientific Advisory Panel

The Fellowship of the RCVS is looking for members of the veterinary
profession to apply to join its expert panels to help process Fellowship
applications, and provide scientific advice and guidance to the initiative.

The Fellowship Credentials
Panels are responsible for reviewing and assessing applications to join the
Fellowship under the three different routes to entry, namely: Meritorious
Contributions to Clinical Practice: to Knowledge; and to the Profession. The RCVS
is now looking for experienced veterinary surgeons to join the panel for each
of these routes to entry in order to
make an important contribution to improving the College’s capability to best
apply the collective knowledge and experience of its members to further science
and the profession.

Members
of the Credentials Panels are responsible for critically reviewing and scoring
Fellowship applications against a list of criteria and working to deadlines set
by the Credentials Panel Chairs to ensure an efficient process and experience
for Fellowship candidates.

Applications
to the Credentials Panel must be submitted to Ceri Chick, Senior Leadership
Officer, on c.chick@rcvs.org.uk before
5pm on Monday 1 February
2021 with a completed application form and CV. Further
information about the role, its criteria and the application form are available online.

In
addition to the Credentials Panel, the Fellowship is also looking for
veterinary surgeons to apply to join its Scientific Advisory Panel which is
responsible for reviewing the evidence and providing scientific advice and
guidance to the Fellowship and the wider profession on topical issues.

The
Fellowship Science Advisory Panel will consist of subgroups formed on the basis
of area of expertise, and a main panel which will review the research by the
subgroups to make recommendations and advise on scientific issues relevant to
recognised veterinary practice.

Those
who are interested can apply to join either the main Panel or become an expert
contributor to one of its subgroups, please write to Ceri Chick (c.chick@rcvs.org.uk) with a short
description of your area of expertise and what you could bring to the role by Friday 5 February 2021. Applicants
for the Panel must be FRCVS.

Professor
John Innes, Chair of the RCVS Fellowship Board, said: “The work to transform
the RCVS Fellowship into a thriving learned society of veterinary science that
promotes scientific excellence, furthers professional skills and expertise, and
can talk to wider society about the importance of veterinary science is
continuing apace, and these two bodies play a vital role in this endeavour.

“Members
of the Credentials Panel are needed to critically review applications for the
Fellowship to ensure that the very best and brightest of the profession who
have contributed a great deal to their areas of interest are welcomed to the
initiative. The Science Advisory Panel is also key to the Fellowship’s future
direction as it develops into a body able to give evidence-based information
and advice on a variety of areas to the profession, the public and the media.

“Please
do consider applying for these roles and if anybody would like to have an
informal conversation with me beforehand about these roles don’t hesitate to
contact me on john.innes@cvsvets.com.”
