Each year, New Fellows across Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand emerge from the hurry and haze of the FACEM Training Program into the bright and brave new world of consultancy. In 2021, ACEM has introduced Regional New Fellows Champions to support New Fellows to find their feet.

The role of the champions is to optimise communication between New Fellows and the College – to ensure New Fellows are aware of the opportunities and initiatives targeted at their cohort and feel ably supported in their transition to Fellowship.

Regional New Fellows Champions work with ACEM staff to:

  • promote ACEM initiatives that support new Fellows at a local, regional or national level via ACEM events and Faculty meetings;
  • ensure appropriate reporting to and liaison with the relevant Regional Faculty Board;
  • provide input into any review or development of College initiatives that support new Fellows; and
  • review external resources for substantiation, merit and relevance to the needs of new emergency medicine consultants.

Full details of the role are set out in PD806 Regional New Fellows Champion.

If you are interested in applying for the role of Regional New Fellows Champion complete and submit your expression of interest, including your CV and statement of suitability. We are currently seeking to fill roles in NT and NZ (one role per jurisdiction).

Contact the Membership and Culture Unit if you have any questions regarding the Regional New Fellows Champion role.
