About the role

We are seeking a highly motivated clinician with a passion for undergraduate medical education who has experience as a senior medical educational leader, to lead delivery of our exciting clinical curriculum (Phase 2: years 3-5) of our undergraduate medical course in our growing Medical School (6PAs).  You will also be required to deliver 4 PAs of clinical practice in a University of Leicester NHS partner Trust, or a University recognised local GP practice.

You will work closely with the Head and Deputy Heads of School and the Directors of Phase 1 (our pre-clinical phase), whilst managing our Heads of Year (years 3-5), and clinical block leads. 

You will have responsibility for developing and delivering the curriculum of the clinical years, its quality assurance and have a desire to continuously enhance it.   You will work closely with our Assessment team to provide high quality formative and summative assessments across the full range of modalities from knowledge, to clinical practice as well as our students’ professional performance.  As an experienced clinical educator, you will provide guidance and support to clinical students whilst also taking a key role in our Health and Conduct Committee, which handles those students struggling to manage, or engage with, our course. 

You will be responsible for ensuring our curriculum is up-to-date and meets all regulatory requirements set by the GMC, our university and other relevant organisations, whilst also seeking to forge a course that is innovative and inspiring so that we produce genuinely excellent doctors.

As a member of the School’s Executive Team, you will have a senior role in achieving our ambition to be a world-leading medical school, routinely within the top tier of UK Medical Schools.
