The Faculty of Public Health (FPH) approves a range of projects for public health Specialty Registrars to gain experience and complete work that can contribute to Learning Outcomes. These projects are normally generated by the Faculty or by a Special Interest Group (SIG) within the FPH. The Educational Supervisor (ES) stays the same, but there will be an agreed Activity/Project Supervisor (PS) for the project, with the expectation that any ‘remote’ working done by the registrar, along with travel costs, will be funded by their deanery unless there is specific funding that covers travel. The Faculty will also be introducing a simple post-project evaluation tool.
It is important to note that these projects are not placements. The links on this page provide further detail on the information required when submitting a project for approval by the Faculty and the information needed from StRs when applying to take part in these projects.
I have a project for a Registrar to work on...
Steps to take to have a potential project reviewed by the Faculty for approval:
STEP 1: A project is identified that will be suitable for Registrars to become involved with and will allow them to gain learning outcomes that contribute to their training.
STEP 2: A project plan is completed and submitted to the Faculty using the FPH Project Specification including the learning outcomes, project duration and start and finish dates.
STEP 3: An approved Project Supervisor is identified to manage and support the Registrar with the completion of the project and, where appropriate, sign off pieces of work for their portfolio. The project supervisor will also be in regular contact with the Registrar’s Educational Supervisor to ensure that the work is being completed as agreed.
STEP 4: The project brief is sent to designated lead for projects in the FPH for approval and recording.
STEP 5: The Faculty contacts the applicant/project sponsor either asking for further information or providing notification of approval.
You will need to provide details of the content of the project, agreed Activity/Project Supervisor (PS) and learning objectives that we will be obtained by the Registrar. Learning outcomes can be found in the public health specialty training curriculum.
