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 Medical Education. 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 a honours degree (or equivalent) in Biomedical Science subject. You will also have a post graduate qualification in a relevant area and recent evidence of publications and conference presentations. You will have experience of higher education teaching in this subject area, enthusiasm for your subject and the ability to teach up to master’s level. A professional teaching qualification or membership of the HE Academy is also essential. Interest and expertise in any of the areas of Biostatistics, Epidemiology, Sociology and/or Ethics would also be useful for this role.
The successful candidate will have a flexible & innovative approach to teaching and excellent presentation, communication and teamworking skills.
