Brighton and Sussex Medical School (BSMS) prepares students to become one of ‘Tomorrow's Doctors’ by offering a totally integrated approach to the development of academic knowledge and clinical expertise. The School has around 620 students across the 5 year degree course who undertake extensive clinical skills and assessment training throughout. Students are required to successfully complete a series of demanding final year practical Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCE’s).

This full-time post offers the opportunity to utilise established clinical knowledge and teaching skills in a successful and dynamic medical school. BSMS has extensive clinical resources and facilities which provide equipment for skills-based teaching and simulation. The clinical skills team is looking to expand our teaching faculty with the recruitment of a clinical skills training practitioner. We are a friendly, motivated and supportive unit which is committed to providing students with expert practical training through internal and external service delivery prior to graduation.

If you are a multi-skilled nurse with experience in teaching we would like you to join our team. We would require advanced organisational and planning skills in order to continue, establish and expand skills-based teaching throughout the curriculum. Education delivery within this post involves a significant amount of administration and facilitation time, including equipment management, room set up and clear away.

You will be responsible for direct teaching and facilitation of education delivery by working with clinical educators within the Trust. The medical school will support an innovative approach to identify areas for expansion and further development within the curriculum to increase direct teaching exposure.   

You will be expected to be educated to graduate level with evidence of additional postgraduate clinical learning and a recognised teaching qualification. You will have advanced communication and organisational skills with the ability to autonomously manage identified areas of skills-based activity within the academic year.

We will provide the opportunity for professional and personal development in a committed, supportive and motivated medical education team and the opportunity to study for further post-registration teaching certification if required. 

The post holder would be required to work Monday – Friday, undertaking office hours to match an academic teaching approach. Hours worked historically will be 0830 – 1630 with reasonable adjustments in place at critical periods within the curriculum such as revision and final examinations (OSCE’s).

If this post attracts sufficient interest before the closing date, we may decide to close this vacancy at an earlier date, so an early application is advised.
