College Tutor and TPD comparison

Although we don't want to be presecriptive about the exact areas of overlap as well differences in role between these two positions we thought the following information could be helpful:

- College tutors are appointed at each trust

- TPDs and dTPD are appointed regionally and although their clinical commitments may be to one trust in their TPD role they work within the region as a whole.

- A job description and elaboration upon the the College Tutor role can be found from The Royal College of Physicians website.

- A template job description (from August 2017) for the TPD role can be found at the bottom of this page
