University Hospitals, Crosshouse and Ayr

University Hospitals, Crosshouse and Ayr are large district general hospitals based in Ayrshire, central Scotland. Crosshouse is situated 35 minutes south of Glasgow and Ayr a further 19 miles South. The total catchment population is around 375,000. Funding from Additional Cost of Teaching money has provided this opportunity to continue our commitment to teaching of undergraduate medical students. We wish to appoint of Clinical Teaching Fellows (14 posts) within the dept of medicine at both hospital sites, commencing August 2018.

The Clinical Teaching Fellow will focus on the organisation, development and provision of teaching to undergraduate medical students from Glasgow University. You will spend approx 8-12 hours per week on a mixture of bedside teaching and facilitated tutorials. Pursuit of a qualification in medical education is encouraged and fully funded.

The balance of time will be in clinical practice with protected time for personal development (audit, research and/or completion of certificate course in medical education). In Ayr, the clinical component of the post will be in Gastroenterology, Respiratory, Endocrine, Cardiology, Rheumatology, and Haematology. In Crosshouse, we can offer clinical experience and learning opportunities in Medical High Dependency, Acute Medicine, Gastroenterology, Cardiology, Respiratory, Renal, Haematology, Acute Stroke, Frailty (community geriatrics) or Infectious Diseases. It may be possible to support other specialties on request. 

All of these posts will contribute to the out-of hours rota in general medicine, which allows the posts to attract a band 1A.  It is not expected that on-call will interfere significantly with day time teaching, clinical or research activities.

These posts are suited to trainees who wish to develop skills in medical education or clinical research,  or who have completed core medical training and wishes to develop sub-specialty experience and improve their CV prior to specialty training application, or ST3 trainees and above who wish to seek out of programme experience (who should contact their Deanery at the earliest juncture). Please note that this post does not carry educational approval with the Dean. 

You will be fully registered with the GMC with a current Licence to Practice, and must have completed foundation or equivalent training.   Evidence of an interest in, and an aptitude for teaching would be advantageous.
