The School of Veterinary Medicine has partnered with the veterinary profession to develop a fully distributed model of work-place based clinical education, encompassing a series of intramural rotations (IMR) hosted at partner practices and organisations throughout the UK.

Integral to this model are the Veterinary Clinical Teaching Fellows (VCTFs), our team of clinical tutors who provide oversight of individual development and evaluation of final year students toward attainment of day-one competences and support practice-based trained clinical mentors in the delivery of our IMR module. This is achieved through regular and frequent practice visits to meet with clinical mentors and through the provision of one-to-one feedback and coaching of students. As well as overseeing the successful development of the students’ portfolio, the VCTF team also play a key role in the assessment of final year students, and act to remediate where necessary.

The VCTFs act as key university liaisons for the partner practices, and will be expected to develop strong working relationships with practice staff. They provide pedagogical training of clinical mentors and contribute to the quality assurance of IMR delivery, including annual review and feedback cycles. The VCTFs are also personal tutors for students in 4thand 5thyear of the curriculum, providing an important role in pastoral care of the students.

We are recruiting one further VCTF in to the equine section of the existing team, which sits within the Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences. The successful appointee will be a UK registered (or eligible to register) veterinary surgeon with a strong clinical background in equine practice. Candidates will have a flair for communicating with both undergraduates and practitioners and a passion for veterinary clinical education. Clinical coaching or academic experience is desirable.
