Senior Lecturer (Education) – Lead for SSCs/Module Lead

Vacancy Ref: 13482 

Salary (H5): £56,297 - £61,301 per annum (incl. of London Allowance)

Full-time, permanent

An experienced medical educator, with a background in biomedical sciences and an enthusiasm for educational innovation, is sought to join the team currently developing a team-based, technology-enhanced curriculum for the new Brunel Medical School (BMS). The first cohort of international students will join the 5-year BMS MBBS programme in September 2021.

The post holder will have broad involvement as part of an established core education team in shaping the new medical school, contributing the development of a focused areas of the Year 1 curriculum as a Module Lead (according to his or her academic area of expertise), and leading the set-up and subsequent delivery of Student Selected Components (SSCs) - a suite of student-selected projects and experiences, offered in Year 2 onwards, tailored to the interests of each student. SSCs may scientific, clinical or community-based.

BMS is part of the Brunel University’s College of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences, which is an established leading provider of health professions education, including Physician Associate, Physiotherapy, Nursing, Occupational Therapy and Social Work programmes.

BMS will be distinctive in a number of ways. A defining feature will be teamwork: team-based learning (TBL) will replace all face-to-face lectures, with clinicians and scientists forming content expert teams. Anatomy practicals will utilise high-quality plastinated cadaveric specimens, with co-teaching by radiologists and surgeons. There will be opportunities for interprofessional learning throughout. A range of digital technologies will enhance the student experience, providing educational continuity should there be disruption to campus or placement learning.

The curriculum will also emphasise communication skills and person-centred care. Students will have early and sustained opportunities to engage with patients in a variety of clinical settings, with primary and community care featuring prominently. There will be a robust system of student support, incorporating peer, faculty and clinician mentorship, in conjunction with teaching on self-care, resilience and lifestyle medicine.

This post would be ideally suited to an educator with experience of teaching physiology and/or other biomedical sciences to medical students, a passion for educational innovation and an interest in contributing broadly to the development of BMS. The post holder will be joining an enthusiastic education team of academic, clinical and professional staff, dedicated to developing doctors with the skills to thrive in rapidly changing healthcare and education environment.
