Clinical Trust Fellow in Medical Education (Obs & Gynae)

Job Reference: 358-2025659-OBGYN-B

University Hospitals of Leicester
Obstetrics and Gynaecology
Leicester Royal Infirmary, Leicester

Applications are invited for an exciting post in clinical education. This post is aimed at those senior trainees or post CCT Fellows or equivalent non training grade fellows, who wish to make a commitment to education as part of their career, allowing them to build on their personal teaching experience, develop expertise in educational theory and practice, and undertake supervised educational research.

The post holder will have a designated educational mentor who will oversee their development as an educator during the placement and co-ordinate opportunities for personal development. A customised programme of training and educational experience will be designed around the needs of the individual.

A strong interest in medical education and experience of teaching in a health-care setting is essential. Although an enthusiasm for teaching is a prerequisite, no assumptions will be made about formal knowledge of educational theory or practice. Hands-on teaching will be central to the post, as will a critical engagement with educational issues around providing postgraduate training in a changing context, both nationally and locally.

The postholder will be expected to undertake a Postgraduate certificate in medical education from the University of Leicester. The cost of this will be covered by the University. For those who already hold a PGCert or Diploma, it would be possible instead to progress to a Diploma or Masters in medical education.

It is anticipated that one day per week will be allocated to undergraduate teaching; one day per week to hands-on teaching of junior medical staff; half a day a week to supervised educational research / organisational work for the relevant educational qualification; and two and half days per week to clinical commitment.

The post holder will be required to have a minimum of 1 years experience working in obstetrics and gynaecology at registrar level within the UK.
