Clinical Associate Professor/Honorary General Practitioner
Are you an experienced and influential academic practitioner in the field of Primary Care? Are you passionate about leading change and delivering an exceptional student experience?
The role holder will carry out a key strategic role within the school, faculty and university as an academic leader in the field of Primary Care.
The role holder will join an established Primary Care Team and as part of the role, will lead primary care education in the Leeds Institute of Health Sciences and for the School of Medicine. The role holder will be expected to act as a core part of the MBChB management team, and would also be expected to advise and support on primary care activity and development of other programmes across the School of Medicine.
With the changing primary care landscape and with more people being treated in a community setting, there are also opportunities for educational development resulting from the Primary Care Networks and Federations. The School of Medicine can capitalise on these changes to support work-place based activity in a community setting for a range of undergraduate and postgraduate learners. The role holder will drive and implement the ongoing developments and expansion of primary care education and oversee a stream of educational research to evaluate educational activity within the school.
You will be a member of the Royal College of General Practitioners or equivalent and be clinically active in General Practice (a minimum of two programmed activity sessions in general practice per week pro rata) and be on the NHS performers list. You will have a PhD/Professional Doctorate, or be able to demonstrate equivalent substantial experience gained through study and professional experience, preferably at postgraduate level.
In accordance with Follett principles, this post will be subject to annual integrated job planning and joint appraisal to be agreed by the University of Leeds and the GP Practice, taking account of the whole of your work.
