The Clinical Excellence Award system is continuing this year. To enable us to score applications and produce ranked lists, we need members’ ACCEA Application Forms to reach us no later than 10am on Wednesday, 15 March 2017.
Applications must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The ACCEA 2017 application system will open on Tuesday, 28 February 2017 and is expected to follow a similar format to previous years. The ACCEA closing date is 5pm on Tuesday, 25 April 2017.
Any applications for ACPGBI support received after 10am on 15 March 2017 will not be considered by the ACPGBI Nominations Committee.
ACCEA guidance is expected to be made available on their website in line with the opening date.
As with previous years, the responsibility for the actual on-line submission of the application to ACCEA will rest firmly with the applicant. The Association of Coloproctology of Great Britain and Ireland is registered as a Specialty Society and under the current rules can submit 8 nominations for Bronze, 4 for Silver and 2 for Gold. Please consult the ACCEA website and follow the instructions carefully.
- It is an open process, so why not ask a suitable colleague to review your CV for mistakes, omissions and improvements?
- As for job applications, anything that enables the reader to glean the information easily from the form will be helpful. Bullet pointed, succinct sentences where possible are one way of achieving this.
ACPGBI Members are also recommended to apply to the Royal College of Surgeons of England and the ASGBI for ACCEA support if they are a member of these organisations.
