Aston Medical School is focused on promoting social mobility, leadership and international connectivity whilst addressing the needs of its community through its widening participation pathway, research strategy and emphasis on primary care education and healthcare leadership. 

We now seek three medically trained Clinical Teaching Fellows to contribute to the delivery and management of an innovative undergraduate primary care curriculum, from August 2018. These posts will not normally count towards the required clinical training.  

Working within a supportive and dynamic multi-professional MBChB team the post-holders will facilitate small group tutorials and teach anatomy and basic clinical skills to Year 1 (and Year 2 if post renewed for a further year). Facilitators will also contribute to the programme and admissions assessments and act as Personal Tutors. In addition they will have opportunities to develop lecturing skills, create and use online resources, and contribute to the design and management of the programme. 

Full training and support will be provided along with comprehensive teaching materials. Post holders will be expected and supported to undertake the PG Certificate/Diploma/Masters in Higher Education provided by Aston University, depending on previous training; and there will opportunities for collaborative evaluation or research projects. 

It is essential that applicants have a passion for teaching and enabling student learning, high quality experience of teaching in an NHS health-care setting and an enthusiasm for cross-discipline working with colleagues in the University and NHS.

The post is open to those who have completed FY2 and/or core training and are not proceeding to specialty training this year. Potential applicants are advised to discuss their application with their training programme director before applying. The School will work with successful applicants and local Trusts to help them continue with 1 clinical session per week, in which case they will require a satisfactory Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Services check with current certificate.
