An experienced medical educator with expertise in clinical communication skills teaching, is sought to join the team currently developing a team-based, technology-enhanced curriculum for the new Brunel Medical School (BMS). The first cohort of students – all international and from diverse backgrounds – will join the BMS MBBS programme in September 2021.

The post holder will have broad involvement as part of an established core education team in shaping the new medical school, leading a high-quality programme of clinical communication skills teaching which will be embedded throughout the 5-year programme. Whilst the approach to developing all aspects of the BMS curriculum will be informed by best practice, we are also aiming to innovate and introduce new initiatives.

BMS is part of the Brunel University’s College of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences, which is an established leading provider of health professions education, including Physician Associate, Physiotherapy, Nursing, Occupational Therapy and Social Work programmes.

The BMS programme will be distinctive in a number of ways; in addition to the emphasis on clinical communication and person-centred care, a defining feature will be teamwork: team-based learning (TBL) will replace all face-to-face lectures, with clinicians and scientists forming teams of content experts. Anatomy practicals will utilise high-quality plastinated cadaveric specimens, with co-teaching by radiologists and surgeons. There will be opportunities for interprofessional learning throughout. A variety of digital technologies will enhance the student experience and provide educational continuity in the event of disruption to campus or placement learning.

This post would be ideally suited to an experienced medical educator with expertise in clinical communication skills teaching, a passion for educational innovation, a commitment to the wellbeing of students, and an interest in contributing broadly to the development of BMS. The post holder will be joining an enthusiastic education team of academic, clinical and professional staff, dedicated to developing doctors with the skills to thrive in rapidly changing healthcare and education environment.
