Vacancy Ref: 13674                                         

Applications are invited from individuals from any clinical discipline who are fully registered medical practitioners and who have a keen interest in medical education. You should normally be in specialty training with a national training number, although other applicants may be considered. The post is for a period of one year, either as an out-of-programme experience or stand-alone experience.

Brunel University London has established a new medical school which will register its first cohort of medical students in September 2021.  Accordingly, Brunel Medical School is establishing a curriculum development team to provide academic oversight of curriculum design and development. Three Medical Education Fellows are being recruited as part of this team. 

These Medical Education Fellow positions represent an excellent opportunity to be part of the team developing an innovative undergraduate medicine (MBBS) programme in London.

Brunel Medical School is part of the 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 Psychology programmes.

The Brunel Medical School programme will have a number of distinctive features, including team based learning, interprofessional learning and early exposure to primary and integrated care settings. A range of digital technologies will be used to enhance the student experience.

Medical Education Fellows will be key members of the curriculum development team, working in collaboration with scientists, clinicians and educators to ensure an academically rigorous and evidence-based approach to bring clinical experience into our medical curriculum. The post holder will be expected to work collaboratively to the design, development and review of curriculum materials. The main focus will be Year 1 of the MBBS programme.

These positions are intended for suitably qualified clinicians who wish to spend a year contributing to an exciting medical education project. Three posts are available and details of the role will vary depending on the post holder’s medical education experience and clinical seniority.

Applications from those in the early stages of their clinical career (between FY2 and ST3) would be welcome, as well those from those at more senior stages (ST4 and above). For senior applicants, a medical education qualification and/or significant experience of medical education would be expected. Whilst these positions would not involve face-to-face teaching, the experience gained would compliment any medical education portfolio.
