The Role and Person
Applications are invited for posts of Clinical Teaching Fellow in Medical Education. These unique posts provide rich opportunities to develop interests and expertise in medical education whilst broadening clinical experience in a specialist, mental health setting.
In the coming year, the Academic Department will be supporting more than 500 student placements, across medicine, nursing, health and social care. There will be considerable opportunities for clinical teaching and educational activity.
The Clinical Teaching Fellowships are bespoke posts, tailored to interests and career intentions:
Two - Four sessions are protected for educational activity where you will get involved in facilitating the education experience of third year students from the University of Buckingham which involves preparing and teaching educational workshops, assessing student’s case presentations and offering pastoral support to students. Also opportunities to teaching 5th Cambridge students.
Six to Eight sessions for clinical activity (with regular, consistent supervision for both elements) as a Ward Doctor on various wards based at St Andrews Northampton site. Your experience here will be similar to a junior doctors and will help you gain some valuable experience working within the different wards which will help you in your future career.
You will be actively involved in supporting medical student placements. One day per week will focus on teaching with small groups of students. The second day can be set aside for project work, linked to areas of interest. You will be fully supported to undertake a funded Pg.Cert. in Medical Education.
Clinical work will be within one of our specialist IPU’s e.g. Men’s Secure, Women’s DBT and Brain Injury. We promote parity of esteem for physical and mental healthcare – you would continue to develop your clinical profile in ways relevant to your intended career.
You will be joining us at a very exciting time where we have specialist IPU’s that can really specialise in the treatment of our patients and create truly personalised care in order to improve patient outcomes and care. To make this a success we need people who have a passion for improving patient outcomes and people who want more autonomy to make decisions that will help improve patient care and lives.
This is some of the comments our current Clinical Teaching Fellow’s said about the role:
“The working environment is conducive for anyone wanting to learn and progress in medicine. In particular, you will have plenty of senior support and guidance. (I don’t know of any previous post I’ve worked in, in which I have had as much access to my Supervising Consultant/GP).
At St. Andrew’s you will definitely feel you are a genuine and appreciated contributor to the Multidisciplinary Team. And, you will certainly feel you are making a positive difference in patient’s lives.”
