Full-time/Part time Between 4-8 academic programmed activities (PAs), to be combined with a minimum of 2 clinical PAs (up to a combined total of 10 programmed activities / full time)

Head of MBChB
Do you have the skills and creativity to lead our MBChB programme as we strive to continually evolve to deliver an outstanding experience for our students, and train the future workforce?  

As Head of MBChB, you will be responsible for the management, delivery and quality assurance of the Medicine and Surgery MBChB programme, a flagship undergraduate programme for the University of Leeds. You will ensure that the content, learning objectives, delivery and assessment of the MBChB programme are kept under review, in accordance with the recommendations of the General Medical Council`s (GMC) outcomes framework.

You will play a key strategic and oversight role in the development, promotion, and delivery of the MBChB programme. Working proactively across the School of Medicine, Faculty and University structures as well as the NHS and our other clinical partners, you will identify and develop opportunities for programme improvement. This will include whole-scale curriculum review, with lead responsibility for promoting and monitoring teaching quality assurance, including the student experience, across the MBChB programme.  You will be supported in these activities by the MBChB Deputy Programme Lead.

Applications are invited from suitably qualified clinical staff at consultant level, or equivalent (including qualified GPs). Candidates must remain clinically active. Employment arrangements will be agreed individually upon appointment. The role will equate to a minimum of 4 PAs Programmed Activities (PAs) of academic time, to be combined with a minimum of 2 clinical PAs (up to a maximum of 10 PAs.) 

It is anticipated that the successful candidate’s clinical and academic PAs will be combined under a single, joint appointment between the successful candidate’s clinical employer and the University.  We are able to offer flexibility as to who is the lead employer in this relationship.  We would welcome applications from candidates who already hold a clinical appointment in the region, and would like to combine this with an academic role.  

At the University of Leeds, we are committed to providing a culture of inclusion, respect and equality of opportunity that attracts, supports, and retains the best students and staff from all backgrounds and from across the world. Whatever role we recruit for we are always striving to increase the diversity of our community, which each individual helps enrich and cultivate. We particularly encourage applications from, but not limited to Black, Asian and ethnically diverse people; people who identify as LGBT+; and people with disabilities.
