About the role

The GMC are increasingly stressing the importance of fair and thorough assessment in undergraduate medical curricula. The main driver for this is patient safety.

In 2016, Leicester Medical School introduced a new curriculum with an emphasis on student apprenticeship. The Year 5 (finals) examinations, both written and OSCEs, are therefore designed to be reflective of the skills, knowledge and attributes required from a doctor at the start of their first foundation post.

This post will lead on developing and delivering year 5 written examinations. The post will provide the opportunity to develop a large number of skills in Medical Education and you will be supported by our strong team of assessment experts.

Consideration will be given to an appropriate honorary title for individuals not directly employed by the University.

About you

The successful candidate will be medically qualified with an MB ChB (or equivalent) and hold a full GMC registration with license to practise. Alongside this, the candidate should hold a consultant post within one of our local partner Trusts or be a GP working in a practice responsible for teaching Leicester Medical students.

The ideal candidate will also have working knowledge and a strong interest in undergraduate/postgraduate medical education, as well as previous experience of working in undergraduate medical assessment as an examiner.

Additional information

Informal enquiries are welcome and should be made to Dr Caroline Woodley, Head of MBChB Assessment, caroline.woodley@le.ac.uk and Dr Chandra Ohri, Director of Clinical Studies (Phase 2), co137@le.ac.uk.
