Education Academy Fellow: Emergency Medicine
Bart’s Health comprises of Whipps Cross University Hospital, Newham General Hospital, Mile End Hospital, St Bartholomew’s Hospital and The Royal London. Within the structure of the new trust there is an Education Academy. Barts Health has four dedicated Simulation and Clinical Skills facilities. We take medical students from Queen Mary University, as well as overseas students. Teaching methods include problem-based learning, lectures, teaching clinics, part task training, full immersion simulation training and bedside teaching.
The Education Academy within Barts Health is expanding in response to need with increasing numbers of students and trainees. There is a real need to ensure that students receive excellent tuition and that trainees have the best possible educational supervision. Emergency Medicine (EM) lends itself to simulation training with many patients managed by large teams with complex medical problems. The Professor in Emergency Medicine has a recognised interest in focused ultrasound, resuscitation, procedural sedation and advanced airway care.
The successful candidate will be integral in the role out of simulation based training in these areas. In line with our Education Strategy, we intend to improve education by building a Trainee Teaching Faculty made up of Specialty Teaching Fellows who contribute to both undergraduate and postgraduate training and drive forward our distributive simulation strategy.
We are looking to increase our Education fellows to support Education for Undergraduates and Post Graduate trainees across Barts Health. We are looking for a trainee with an interest in Medical Education. This post would be based at Whipps Cross University Hospital. The post is divided between 50% clinical activity and 50% will be dedicated to education delivery at that site. We have the equivalent role at the Whipps Cross University Hospital, Royal London and Newham Hospital already.
The post is for one year and the core remit will be to support different modalities in Education for the undergraduate and post graduate medical trainees that are based within the Emergency Department. They would also be involved with team based simulation training both within the department and formerly within the Simulation Centres. The successful applicant will be expected to assist with Year 3 Clinical Skills delivery within QMUL and Simulation for both under- and post-graduates across Barts Health. From August 2018 all fellows joining our team will be invited to join our Education Forum where fellows have access to a structured development programme. All our fellows are encouraged to undertake a PG Cert in Education and funding will be available to support this.
This is a 12 month fixed term. The successful applicant will get support and development in this role from the Education Team as well as having a named supervisor in the Emergency Department. The post would typically suit anyone just about to start specialist training or those wishing to undertake further training in medical education as part of an Out of Programme Experience (OOPE) from their training programme. Prior agreement must be sought with the relevant Specialty Training Committee (STC). The post will be 50% education commitment and 50% clinical duties within the Emergency Department.
