This post represents an exciting opportunity for an individual in the early stages of their career to develop as a GP educator in the School of Medicine at a time of student number expansion. Keele Medical School places a high value on general practice in its undergraduate curriculum, we use and engage GP practices more than most medical schools (23% of our clinical placements are in general practice, compared to a national average of just 13%). We are a vibrant, forward thinking team, working together to engage our undergraduate medical students with all aspects of general practice medicine throughout their course.

You will have the opportunity to teach communication and clinical skills and problem-based learning sessions, and to contribute to assessment, as well as participating in student selection, mentoring and appraisal. You will be expected to contribute to the GP team’s administrative processes relating to community based teaching, and the support and development of clinical teachers in the community.

During the period of appointment, you will be expected to complete the Keele Certificate in Medical Education and will be supported in this.    

You will possess a medical Degree (or equivalent), be fully registered with the General Medical Council and have a licence to practise. You will have completed ST3 or equivalent, or about to complete GP vocational training. You will have some experience of teaching, good IT skills and the ability to engage the interest and enthusiasm of students. Effective communication, interpersonal and organisational skills are also essential, together with evidence of experience in teaching.   

Keele University values equality and diversity across our workforce and to ensuring our staff community is reflective of the diversity of our student population. In support of these commitments the University welcomes applications from individuals of Black, Asian and ethnic minority backgrounds for all roles.
