About your role, your handbook and change of Tutor

As the RCPCH College Tutor, you are the paediatrician responsible for postgraduate medical education in your NHS Trust. You will have a strong interest in education and an ability to effectively network with colleagues in the Trust and the Deanery/LETB.

The details of working arrangements within the Trust, including liaison across Trust boundaries, need to be appropriate to the local situation and agreed with colleagues. 

RCPCH holds meetings twice a year for College Tutors containing a range of content designed to help you perform your role. Find out more in the College Tutor Handbook.
