The post is a part time leadership opportunity for those interested in building a career in medical education to develop their skills as a medical educator leading on one of the Departments most recent and innovative attachments in primary care. Medicine in the community or MICA is a 10 week attachment in year 3 of the MBBS curriculum, where students in pairs spend 10 weeks at a local GP practice in NW London. This attachment is an exciting development drawing on educational theory from longitudinal learning service and social accountability. Within the attachment there are a multitude of student selected special choice modules including media and medicine, yoga and mindfulness and health coaching. It is the role of the appointee to oversee and manage the year 3 MICA course as a whole and have over sight of the leads for each of these special choice modules.

MICA began in 2016 as a pilot and now is entering its third year, it will be fully rolled out to the full year 3 MBBS cohort from 2018 onwards.

The post holder will be required to develop, deliver and evaluate this attachment supported by a deputy MICA senior teaching fellow, Faculty development team and the wider GP teaching department. You should have Certificate of Completion of Training in General Practice or equivalent, full registration with the General Medical Council and experience of designing and developing a new course and mapping learning outcomes to course content.

This post is available part time, 14 hours per week, for a fixed term of 24 months and will be based at the Charing Cross Campus, Hammersmith.
