BOA Representative on Joint Committee on Intercollegiate Examiners (JCIE)

Applications are now closed.

Thank you to everyone who applied, we will be in touch with applicants in due course.

The BOA is seeking a new representative to sit on the JCIE for a period of five years from March 2020. The JCIE is responsible for the supervision of standards, policies, regulations and professional conduct of the Specialty Fellowship Examinations.


Meetings take place three times per year, usually in March, July and December.  Board Members are automatically placed on the Panel of Examiners and would be required to attend an Induction Course in Edinburgh.  Examinations take place three times per year but examiners are not expected to attend every examination. Occasionally Board Members are asked to review applications for the examinations.

Applicants must:

  • be BOA Home Fellow
  • have a licence to practise
  • hold a substantive (min 5 years) Consultant post  in the NHS/Public Health Service (Ireland) or have held a substantive Consultant post within the past 5 years
  • (if appointed) have the approval of their Chief Executive or Medical Director to commit the time necessary to undertake this important educational role

It would be very desirable for applicants to be an existing member of the Panel of Examiners or have examining experience, preferably MRCS or undergraduate.

For more information download the Terms of Reference and the Criteria for Appointment. Please note that these are Criteria for Appointment to the Panel of Examiners. The appointed JCIE representative will become a member of the Panel of Examiners (if they are not a member already), and therefore anyone wishing to apply should demonstrate through their CV and covering letter that they meet the ‘Criteria for Appointment’ and ‘Person Specification’ for the Panel.

Please note the role is not renumerated.
