The Institute of Health Sciences Education (IHSE) and the School of Biological and Chemical Sciences (SBCS) are recruiting to a new exciting post in Medical Education. This would be an ideal opportunity for a medical doctor with experience in education, and a passion for curriculum development, e-learning and face to face teaching. The post involves some periods of travel to China (the current intention is in the order of six weeks a year over two or three trips) to deliver teaching in a short intensive blocks, although the post holder will be principally based at QMUL in IHSE.
The principle focus of the post is to set up and deliver an innovative clinical skills curriculum as a thread that runs within the first two years of the Joint Programme in Biomedical Sciences and Clinical Biomedicine between QMUL and Nanchang University in China. This will initially involve mapping the existing curriculum in order to find possible points of intersection, and developing these into a flip-learning course. The flip-learning will involve creating dedicated e-learning modules to revise and integrate prior science learning delivered primarily by SBCS, followed by face to face sessions within the skills labs in Nanchang where the students apply this learning to the clinical context. The post holder will have support from both IHSE and SBCS in their development of the curriculum, and the use of e-learning software, but will need a high degree of self-management.
This post will offer a wide experience in medical education including assessment, curriculum development, evaluation and educational research, as well as a diverse range of teaching modalities. Support will be provided for gaining a formal educational qualification if not already gained.
The post is permanent and full time. Should the post holder wish to maintain a license to practice in the UK we would explore a secondment arrangement for up to one day a week. Salary will be from £42,433 - £44,807 as appropriate to experience. 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 before application would be welcomed to Dr Dason Evans of the IHSE at firstname.lastname@example.org and Dr Mark Maconochie of SBCS at email@example.com
