Clinical Educator (General Practice: Tutor Development and Quality), Leicester
Closing date midnight on 30th August
We are looking for a Clinical Educator (General Practice: Tutor Development and Quality) to join Leicester Medical School. In this post you will join a senior team of GP educators and Medical School educators and provide an opportunity for leadership in areas of primary care within the curriculum. The post involves leadership of undergraduate medical education within the medical school, spanning different parts of the curriculum.
The Medical School has recently redesigned its curriculum. Clinical training is now three years in length, having previously been two and a half years, an additional six months has been added to the end of the course creating an extended Foundation Assistantship. Most importantly, the new curriculum has allowed considerable expansion in primary care placement delivery with 12 weeks now in year 3 (an ‘apprenticeship’) and 5 weeks in year 5 (an 'assistantship'). This enhanced programme is specifically intended to ensure our students qualify with a broader understanding and ability to practise as a doctor and to encourage more of our graduates to consider a future career in general practice.
