The trainees organise a training day on a monthly basis on the 3 rd Tuesday of each month. The training day comprises of an educational event and every other month the afternoon is devoted to a business meeting of the committee. The rota for organising the educational element of the training day is a delegated function of the trainees committee of which all trainees are members. The educational sessions vary and topics will be subject to interest such as Part I and II, Leadership, Intelligent careers or current Public Health issues.
All trainees are members from each training grade - Public Health Assistants, Senior House Officers, Specialist Registrars and Specialist Trainees.
The committee is coordinated by a Chair, Deputy Chair and secretary.
In addition to the committee meetings all trainees have access to an E group which is a useful tool for information sharing and keeping regular contact.
