The Joint Committee on Intercollegiate Examinations (JCIE) has agreed that the ten Intercollegiate Specialty Boards would welcome applications to join the Panels of Question Writers for the Section 1 examination from colleagues in the SAS Grade. This agreement has been approved by the four Presidents at the Joint Surgical Colleges meeting.
Application was previously limited to Consultants in a substantive post. A revised Criteria for Appointment, advertisement and application form have now gone onto the JCIE website.
This amendment is confirmed on the attached correspondence from the JCIE Chair and the MCQ Writing Groups Chair
