Two trainee representative roles on the MOMS executive committee have become available. This is a fantastic opportunity to represent the interests of both obstetric and physician trainees in MOMS.

The role involves regular meetings with the MOMS exec where you can discuss training opportunities alongside other MOMS agenda items. You will have the chance to develop the role depending on your skills and interests. Being organised and enthusiastic is essential!

During our time as trainee reps, we have helped develop and run the pre-conference training afternoons, involving low-fidelity simulation and case-based discussions. We have helped with social media and regularly used @M0MSUK to tweet about training opportunities and MOMS news. The MOMS website has been updated to be more user-friendly and resources like guidelines, webinars and podcasts have been collated to the benefit of both MOMS and non-MOMS members alike. The role of trainee rep is varied and flexible. If you would like to apply for the position please follow the link below.

Importantly: You must be a trainee in obstetrics or a physician speciality and a member of MOMS.
Expression of interest: Maximum 1000 characters
Deadline for submission: April 9th 2021 midnight

Please email us on macdonaldobstetricmedicine@gmail.com if you have any queries.

Update: For those who are close to CCT and wondering whether you can apply?
The short answer is YES YOU CAN!
However, the MOMS exec appreciates that the time around CCT may be very stressful and so leave it open to the trainee rep if they are close to CCT whether they continue in their role beyond CCT as long as they feel they are able to and keen to continue representing trainees and obstetric medicine training with their speciality. Our constitution says terms are no longer than 3 years but that is not to say one needs to remain in the role if it is no longer working for them. From the experience the current trainee reps, we feel it would be beneficial to have a minimum term of 1 year, regardless of CCT date in order to feel like you’ve settled into your role.
