The successful candidate will have 100% of their time protected for teaching. Out-of-hours work is not a requirement of this role, but could be undertaken after negotiation and discussion with the DME and the service manager. A single session per week or clinical work could also be included to maintain skills.

Main duties of the job

Main duties:

  • Delivery of teaching sessions on medicine, surgery, history taking and physical examination
  • Bedside medical student teaching and demonstration of clinical signs
  • Coordinating student timetabling
  • Assisting in delivering key medical student inductions
  • Taking on a mentorship role for medical students and providing a forum to give feedback and help develop and enhance their learning and well being
  • Contributing to running and developing simulation sessions
  • Engaging in quality improvement projects and helping develop and adapt existing teaching models for medical students

    Working for UHS

    We know that our people are central to our success. So, it's only right that we reward you with

  • Access to state-of-the-art equipment
  • Opportunities to develop – UHS is one of the largest acute teaching Trusts in England, we offer learning and development opportunities to help you achieve the career you aspire to.
  • A minimum of 40 days paid holiday (pro rata), and a generous pension scheme.
  • A range of NHS discounts
  • A break from the hustle and bustle of city centre life, with beaches and New Forest on your doorstep.
  • Detailed job description and main responsibilities

    Your Responsibilities

    What you'll do

    The successful candidate will work closely with the undergraduate module and placement leads. They will be expected to go to the clinical areas where students are placed, make contact with the students, and teach them regularly. The exact teaching timetable and groups of students will be flexible depending on the time of year. However, it is expected that the postholder will spend around 50% of their week face to face with students. The postholder will need to show initiative and the ability to manage their own time. Supervision for the fellowship in UHS would be from the Director of Medical Education and the DME team at UHS.

    This role will provide the post holder with ample opportunities to develop their teaching skills through a combination of time spent teaching, mentorship from the module and placement leads, observing other teachers, and delivering observed teaching sessions with feedback

The opportunity for Continued Professional Development (CPD) is highly supported and encouraged by the Trust, with options available to take study leave. All licensed doctors must meet the GMC requirements for revalidation and there will be an annual appraisal to support this process.
