University Hospital Crosshouse

We wish to appoint an enthusiastic individual to assist in delivery of Undergraduate and Postgraduate Teaching within the Emergency Dept of a friendly busy district general University hospital. It is anticipated that around 8 – 12 hours per week will be devoted to teaching activities, based within the Emergency Department and will focus on teaching medical students who rotate to University Hospital Crosshouse.

You will be encouraged to undertake clinical research and / or audit projects in Ayrshire. The research component of the post will be tailored to the particular interests of the appointee. These activities will be supported through a mentorship programme and successful candidates will receive up to £1500 pa pro rata to support agreed development activities in their chosen area of interest. Alternatively, candidates preferring to develop an education portfolio will have a postgraduate certificate in medical education funded. This will be via a distance learning route (as an alternative to clinical research / audit).

This post will have a negotiable commitment to clinical duties (anticipated approximately 24-32 hours per week), although anti-social hours will be limited to facilitate other teaching requirements.

Commencing 7 August 2019 for 12 months (or 6 months on discussion). A 40% pay supplement will be paid to recognise contribution to out of hours working and emergency duty commitments. The posts are not recognised for training.

Prospective applicants are encouraged to contact Dr T Hopkins, Clinical Director (Tel: 01563 827751)​uk or Dr J Collie, Undergraduate Sub-Dean (01563 827416) Jane.​
