RCVS Ethics Review Panel vacancies

The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) launched a one-year trial of an Ethics Review Panel (ERP) which commenced in July 2016. The ERP is intended to provide a mechanism of ethical approval for practice-based veterinary surgeons and registered veterinary nurses who wish to undertake research projects outside the scope of a university and/or industry context.

Following the successes of the trial’s first year, the ERP trial has been extended for a further year and its remit expanded to include consideration of canine, feline, equine and farm animal research projects.

We are seeking to appoint two veterinary surgeon members (to include one equine veterinary surgeon and one farm animal veterinary surgeon) as well as one lay member to sit on the ERP and review applications. 

These roles will complement the seven current panel members including the Chair (who is an ethicist) and an existing lay member.
