Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 23rd June 2022
Closes: 12th July 2022

College of Biomedical and Life Sciences
 
This successful and established Scheme has been running for twenty years, providing a rolling programme of two-year posts for four General Practitioners.  It is based in Cardiff and South East Wales, within the Division of Population Medicine which has an internationally competitive track record in research, and makes a significant contribution to undergraduate and postgraduate education.
 
The Scheme would suit any GP qualified to work in Wales who wanted to learn about teaching, critical appraisal and research, and be sponsored to gain a further qualification of their choice, whilst delivering much needed support to practices in disadvantaged areas to improve patient care.
 
No previous academic experience is required, as there is a high level of support from senior staff, both academically, and clinically.  In addition, the strong and cohesive team of Academic Fellows provides plenty of peer support.
 
44 Fellows have been, or are in post, the majority having achieved research publications, and postgraduate qualifications in a wide range of areas, and all have had valuable undergraduate teaching experience.  To date 127 Academic Fellow attachments have supported practices to improve their patient care.
 
Typically an Academic Fellow will go on to practice in deprived areas while maintaining links with the Division of Population Medicine, in teaching and research.  They also are highly likely to teach undergraduates in their practices and become GP trainers.  Some have moved into Public Health and medical management. Several have secured prestigious externally funded research fellowships and completed PhDs.

‘This scheme has been pivotal in the career path I have taken’

In a rapidly changing professional world this is an unrivalled opportunity to gain experience and qualifications that would prepare a GP for wider future professional opportunities
