Applications are invited for a 12 months, part time 0.5FTE post of a Special Lecturer / Clinical Tutor medicine within UCD School of Medicine.

These `Special Lecturer/Clinical Tutors' play a major role in identifying key teaching moments for our students who are attached to clinical teams as part of their experiential learning. The Clinical Tutor instruct and supervise students during their clinical attachment, provide lectures and tutorials as part of the formal clinical curriculum and assist with the preparation of clinical examinations.

They provide academic advice and career mentoring to students and ensure that the clinical rotation supports the learning objective of the relevant module. In some instances, Clinical Tutors may also act as module coordinator in the formal University programme management structures. A number of Clinical Tutors are also actively involved in our biomedical, clinical or medical education research working with a specific Principal Investigator and may be undertaking a higher research degree (e.g. MD, MCh, MAO, MSc or PhD).

These individuals are responsible for undertaking research experiments or data reviews and disseminating their findings through publication as a thesis, in academic journals or at scientific meetings. All Clinical Tutors are part of a vibrant community of academic staff who pass on their clinical experience and expertise to the next generation of medical professionals.

The School provides academic support and training such that the Tutors themselves develop their own educational expertise and leadership. S
