Are you an experienced clinician who wishes to diversify into education? Would you enjoy working remotely from home with travel included for variety?

Here at the School of Veterinary Medicine, we have successfully established a high-quality network of clinical practices to deliver a fully distributed model of workplace based clinical education. Integral to this model are the Lecturers in Veterinary Clinical Practice (LVCPs), our team of clinical tutors who provide oversight of individual development and evaluation of final year students toward attainment of day-one competences and support practice-based trained clinical mentors in the delivery of our Intramural Rotation module (IMR). This is achieved through regular and frequent practice visits to meet with clinical mentors and through the provision of one-to-one feedback and coaching of students.  

The role

We have an opening for a part time (0.7FTE) LVCP post with an equine bias. Additional experience working in farm, companion animal, or mixed practice would be beneficial as members of the equine team do provide cross species cover when required.

In this role, you will provide pedagogical training to clinical mentors and will contribute to the quality assurance of IMR delivery. Acting as a key university liaison for the partner practices, you will be expected to develop strong working relationships with practice staff.

You will act as a personal tutor for students in 4th and 5th year (an important role in pastoral care of the students as they transition through the clinical years) and will play a key role in the assessment of final year students.

Please note that there will be a requirement for significant travel to practices to support students, and a requirement to come to Guildford for a period of induction and subsequently for a minimum of 7 weeks a year, however travel costs are covered by the university

This role supports flexible working and includes a generous pension and holiday allowance.

About you

The successful appointee will be a UK registered (or eligible to register) veterinary surgeon and will be an experienced equine clinician.

You will have a flair for communicating with both undergraduates and practitioners, be an excellent team player, and will have a passion for veterinary clinical education. Prior academic experience is not a prerequisite, but some teaching or clinical coaching experience is beneficial. Comprehensive educational training is provided during the induction process (including completion of Graduate Certificate in Higher Education).

Due to the nature of the role and the geographical locale of our partner practices, this post would ideally suit someone based in the Midlands / North of England.

Further Information

To apply please attach your CV and a cover letter evidencing your suitability against the essential criteria required for this role as outlined in the person specification.

Interviews are scheduled to be held in person on Wednesday 17th July 2024.

Informal enquiries are invited and should be directed to Paul Pollard (p.pollard@surrey.ac.uk)
