Within the Centre for Medical Education, the Academic Unit for Clinical, Communication and Learning Skills (CCLSU) is responsible for delivery of the undergraduate clinical and communication skills curriculum. The Unit was awarded Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL) in Clinical and Communication Skills by HEFCE, jointly with City University as part of its Strategic Alliance, in 2005-2010.

The combined clinical and communication skills lecturer post exists to deliver teaching on both the clinical and the communication skills curriculum and promote integration of these complimentary skills within the evolving curriculum.

This new post arising from increased student numbers on the MBBS programme will deliver teaching initially at the Robin Brook Clinical Skills Centre and in due course may be re-located to our partner hospital satellite campus at Ilford. A large part of their initial role will be in building up a network of local clinical and communication skills tutors, and training them. The post-holder will both teach undergraduates and supervise more junior teachers.

Applicants should have a medical degree and experience of teaching methods for communication including small group learning, role-play and incorporation of patient feedback. They should also have experience of teaching clinical skills in simulation.

It is expected that the postholder will maintain one day a week in clinical practice to maintain registration and keep up-to-date with the changing clinical practice environment.

The post is full time and indefinite starting from January 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter. Starting salary will be in the range £46,489 - £51,899 per annum inclusive of London Allowance. Benefits include 30 days annual leave, pension scheme and interest-free season ticket loan.

Candidates must be able to demonstrate their eligibility to work in the UK in accordance with the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006. Where required this may include entry clearance or continued leave to remain under the Points Based Immigration Scheme.

Informal enquiries should be addressed to Dr Dason Evans
