The Department of Medicine and Directorate of Education at the George Eliot Hospital NHS Trust are delighted to present an opportunity for highly motivated individuals to contribute to the development of its innovative and high performance services.
The role of the new clinical education fellow would be to support delivery of both Undergraduate Education for students from Warwick Medical School and to gain further experience in subspecialty medicine including inpatient and outpatient services. Your time would be split 50:50 between service delivery and medical education.
The George Eliot Hospital is an Associated Teaching Hospital of Warwick Medical School taking part in Undergraduate Education of Medical students. You will be joining a Trust with excellent professional and academic links with the University of Warwick Medical School. You will work within a modern and first class education facility, the George Eliot Training and Education Centre (GETEC), which includes the Clinical Skills Centre, Resuscitation Room, Clinical Ward, Skills Laboratory and Simulation Suite.
You will serve a diverse population of over a quarter of a million people in a catchment area encompassing large cities, market towns and rural villages. The lifestyle opportunities range from big city living in neighbouring Birmingham, Coventry and Leicester with their abundant cultural and lifestyle facilities, to more sedate settings in the many attractive villages in the Warwickshire and Leicestershire countryside. This is a fixed term appointment (initially for a period of one year but with the possibility to extend for a further year). You will be expected to participate in the on-call rota for the specialist registrar tier in medicine at a ratio of approximately 1:10.
Warwick Medical School has a range of postgraduate courses in medical education which are accessible on a modular basis and can be used to obtain a Masters degree in Medical Education. In order to support the Medical Education element of the post, the Trust will make funding available to support CPD towards a Certificate, Diploma or Masters in Medical Education.
Applicants should hold full GMC Registration and experience in medicine to the equivalent of an ST3 or above. Should you require any further information or wish to arrange an informal visit, please contact Dr Peter Handslip, Director of Education (secretary), on 024 7615 3817 or Dr O’Brien, Clinical Director of Division A, on 024 7686 5562.
