The University of Central Lancashire and American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine have put together a new programme aimed at helping ease the global shortage of doctors. The two institutions linked up in 2017 when almost the entire contingent of the AUC School of Medicine re-located to UCLan while their base on the island of St Maarten was rebuilt following Hurricane Irma.

Now, UCLan and the AUC have joined forces to offer a new blended programme, to enable students from the UK and across the world to study towards their accredited medical qualification, the Doctor of Medicine (MD) degree - the postgraduate degree of physicians in the United States. UCLan's School of Medicine will run the 2-year programme, which commenced in September 2019, providing students with a postgraduate diploma in International Medical Sciences (PGIMS) from UCLan, followed by their MD with AUC. Students will then be eligible to do clinical rotations at AUCs clinical sites, which include hospitals in the US, the UK, and Canada.

As part of this exciting development, the University is seeking to appoint a Senior Lecturer in Gross Anatomy and Neuroscience. Teaching within the Anatomy and Neuroscience course you would follow a US styled medical syllabus that integrates neurochemistry, neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, neuropathology, neuropharmacology, and basics of medical neurology. The course reviews clinical neurological disorders and illustrates the changes associated with neurological deficits after lesions.

Working within a committed and enthusiastic team you will contribute to the course planning, teaching, and assessment as well as providing module leadership. You will hold an educational qualification in relevant subject areas such as a good honours degree in anatomy / neuroscience and a PhD in relevant area of study.  You will also have a post graduate qualification/ training in a relevant area and evidence of publications and conference presentations. Experience of higher education teaching in this subject area, enthusiasm for your subject and the ability to teach up to Masters level. A teaching qualification such as fellowship of the HEA is desirable.

You will of course also have excellent communication, presentation and team working skills. Informal enquiries are welcomed - please contact Susan Jamieson, Programme Lead (scjamieson@uclan.ac.uk) via email in the first instance.
