The Institute of Health Sciences Education are recruiting to a part-time (0.6 FTE) post in Medical Education. This is funded through the Chadburn Lectureship scheme “to provide opportunities for doctors in training, whose personal circumstances make it difficult or impossible for them to give full-time commitment to their careers.” Applicants need to be doctors who have not yet completed training.

This is a one year post, covering maternity leave for current postholder, focusing on clinical and communication skills education. It will also bring opportunities for a wider experience in medical education including assessment, curriculum development, evaluation and educational research, a diverse range of teaching modalities, and support in gaining an educational qualification.

This would be a perfect post for those with an interest in medical education and a keen interest for clinical and communication skills teaching and learning.

Within the Centre for Medical Education, the Clinical and Communication Skills Unit (CCSU) is responsible for delivery of the undergraduate clinical and communication skills curriculum and to promote integration of these complementary skills within the evolving curriculum.

The Lecturer would be expected to maintain a license to practice and undertake some clinical work in addition to this post, however the Lecturer must work part-time overall – taking into account both educational and clinical duties.

Applicants should have some experience of teaching methods for communication including small group learning, role-play and incorporation of patient feedback. They should also have experience of teaching clinical skills in simulation.

The post is 0.6 FTE and on a Fixed-Term 1 year contract. Salary will be in the range of £47,018 - £58,672 per annum (pro-rata). Benefits include 30 days’ annual leave (pro rata), pension scheme and interest-free season ticket loan.

Candidates must be able to demonstrate their eligibility to work in the UK in accordance with the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006. Where required this may include entry clearance or continued leave to remain under the Points Based Immigration Scheme.

Informal enquiries before application would be welcomed to Dr Graham Easton, on g.easton@qmul.ac.uk
