MOMS Educational Lead vacancy and new appointment to MOMS secretary
It is with great pleasure that we can announce that Dr Charlotte Frise will succeed Dr Anita Banerjee as Secretary of MOMS effective 1st Jan 2024. Dr Frise was the only applicant, and her expression of interest statement can be read below. We would like to thank Dr Banerjee for her tireless work for MOMS over the years.
Dr Frise’s EoI Statement
I would like to apply for Secretary as I believe that I have the expertise and enthusiasm required for this role. I have been MOMS educational representative since 2021 which has provided me with invaluable experience of the work of the committee and society. I have been responsible for developing and implementing popular regular webinars, as well as a virtual educational afternoon which all receive excellent feedback. I was also involved in organising the annual meetings and helped organise the inaugural meeting for MMN leads, which was welcomed and successful.
I have very much enjoyed being part of the committee and have learnt a great deal from others, working together towards a shared vision. This has influenced my decision to apply for Secretary, to which I would bring energy and enthusiasm, as well as excellent organisational skills and meticulous attention to detail. I hope to contribute to the ongoing development of the society, both with respect to membership and trainees, as well as nationally with NHSE and Royal Colleges.
Finally, I recognise my own consultant position was the result of unwavering support of consultants who trained me. I would like to do the same for future Obstetric Medicine specialists. I really value working with trainees and would love to use this position to strengthen the support we offer medical and obstetric trainees both as individuals and as a society.
Ultimately, I am ready to take on a new role and serve MOMS as our specialty grows in size and strength.
There is, therefore, a new vacancy in the executive committee of MOMS for the position of Educational Lead.
Expressions of interest (max 250 words) can be submitted here and are open until 31st December 2023 22:00 GMT.
Funded trainee places on Higher Specialty Obstetric Medicine Credential – applications open now
The Royal College of Physicians (RCP) credential in obstetric medicine which leads to a Professional Diploma in Obstetric Medicine has been designed for higher specialty trainees with an interest in obstetric medicine, who wish to gain a credential in this specialist area.
This is a learner-led credential. Learners will work with their educational supervisor to plan their learning and identify opportunities to gain the knowledge and expertise required to complete the credential. You will be supported by a named educational supervisor in your Obstetric Medicine approved training centre who will provide support and advice during your training period there. They will provide guidance on how the knowledge and skills developed during the credential might be used when you return to your usual clinical environments.
Applications open from 27 November to 22 January and we welcome applications from ST5 and above physician trainees. More details about application criteria and the location of the training centres can be found here.
Opportunity to Join the MOMS Executive Committee!
Anita Banerjee will be stepping down as Secretary of MOMS at the end of the year. We thank Anita for her tireless work and dedication to MOMS and wish her all the best in her new roles.

Please email us if you require further information on the job role.
Candidates must be members of the Society and should register their interest by submitting an expression of interest here.
This should include a 250-word paragraph highlighting your strengths, your suitability for the role of secretary and what you would bring to the role and MOMS as a society.

Expressions of interest for President of MOMS closed on 29th September. There was one EOI from Dr Lucy Mackillop (current president). The MOMS exec have, therefore, endorsed the reappointment of Dr Mackillop for a further 3 year term.
Message from the President:
“It is an honour to take on the leadership of MOMS for another 3 years. This is an incredibly important time for MOMS and maternal medicine in general. I look forward to continuing to work with the wonderful executive team to grow our society and support our members to fulfil our society mission statements.”
