About the Role
This post is to support the expansion and development of Edge Hill University’s Medical School. Our students are from a diverse range of professional backgrounds. You will further enhance and grow our highly successful and rapidly expanding multiprofessional health professions education provision.
We work closely with many stakeholders in NHS organisations and with a variety of Royal Colleges. Our staff are well networked, which is essential for ensuring curricula are current and appropriate. We have a strong involvement with our service users and carers council and they provide excellent support to our recruitment, curriculum design and delivery.
You will join a growing team of colleagues from a variety of professions, largely from the medical, nursing and allied health professions and clinical/medical educationalists. You will be expected to teach, assess and engage in student support for a variety of modules and programmes in our extensive postgraduate medical/clinical educator development portfolio (dependent on subject expertise) and must be able to supervise dissertation/advanced practice projects in the academic discipline of health professions education. Additionally, you will be expected to contribute to programme development/enhancement and develop and deliver modules in your sphere of educational and/or clinical expertise. Evidence of a strong or developing research profile is essential for this role.
Providing a high-quality student experience is our primary aim and you will support with effective learning, teaching and assessment strategies that are embedded in current, evidence-based practice, supporting students to achieve their full potential and preparing them for their professional career.
