The purpose of this post is to train doctors to be excellent clinical teachers with emphasis on developing skills in simulation, working as part of a team of like-minded enthusiastic individuals in a forward thinking simulation faculty. It is aimed at applicants looking for a post at ST3+ scale or above. This is a challenging post that will test skills that are not the focus of most clinical training roles, yet are highly relevant and transferable to senior clinical roles. This post encompasses more than just teaching. The successful applicant will take part in various modes of assessment and appraisal with emphasis on designing, developing and delivering simulation education to undergraduates and post-graduates using a variety of methods.
You will have a significant role in the delivery of education for year 5 medical students from Keele University Medical School whilst they are placed in Emergency Medicine. This is particularly exciting as the University continues to develop a new curriculum more dependent on a variety of simulated experiences for students in both simulation lab and in-situ experiences. Educational models may include problem based learning, clinical and communication skills tuition, inter-professional education, the use of simulated patients and environments and use of advanced whole body simulation (via use of SimMan 3G). The involvement in the undergraduate curriculum may involve a range of activities, including bedside teaching, clinical skills teaching, and communication skills.
