9. Retirement and resignation

Those who retire from clinical practice may continue to examine to the end of the academic year in which case they cease clinical practice.
a. If an examiner wishes to resign it should normally take effect from the end of the academic year.
b. The ETE Board reserves the right, acting on the advice of the Committee, to ask an examiner to resign at any time.
c. An examiner who resigns may subsequently apply to be re-appointed for the balance of his term of office.
