Bristol Veterinary School is recruiting a Veterinary Clinical Demonstrator (maternity cover) to join a community of clinical teaching staff providing support for veterinary students and veterinary nursing students across our various clinical sites. This is an exciting opportunity to become part of a developing team of veterinary educationalists within the School. Ideally with experience in large animal practice, you will be based primarily within the Farm practice and/or referral hospitals (Small Animal and Equine), depending on any species bias you may have. You will work closely with our clinicians, nurses and auxiliary staff to facilitate clinical teaching around a busy caseload.

You will play an important role in enhancing the student experience. As a practitioner with clinical experience and a passion for teaching, you are not expected to have referral-level experience or expertise, however, you will work to support the students in their learning from a rich, diverse and challenging caseload. You will provide feedback and contribute to assessment as well as supporting the administration associated with formal university teaching rotations. As part of the clinical educational team, you will be supported to contribute to the development of teaching and assessment and research outputs in the area of veterinary education.

You may also act as a facilitator for the new Accelerated Graduate Entry Veterinary Programme, using a case-based approach to learning which will be delivered in bespoke, state-of-the-art facilities at Langford. You will also contribute to the development of case-based teaching materials at the start of an exciting new educational venture, collaborating with colleagues across the Faculty (including Bristol Medical School, and the Centre for Applied Anatomy) in a wider network supporting Health education, research and development.
