The role

The core focus of this role will be the development and delivery of a high quality, reliable and valid medical undergraduate assessment programme; that ensure the standards required for students to graduate with a primary medical qualification in the UK. The postholder will lead the development of novel formative and summative assessments in the Surrey GEM programme, including use of workplace based assessments and professional portfolios, using evidence-based contemporary assessment theory and methods. The assessment programme will have a particular emphasis on student feedback and feedforward mechanisms that support individual student learning needs.  

As Lead for Assessment, you will be working closely with the Dean for Medicine, and responsible for the development of the assessment programme and this aspect of the student experience across Medicine, in line with the University’s Learning and Teaching Strategy and other institutional policies. Within your remit of developing and delivering the BMBS assessment programme you will work with our team of educators and build successful relationships with NHS partners.
