Improving Healthcare Theme Lead – Truro

Are you interested in medical education? Are you a clinician who is interested in quality improvement? There is an opportunity at Exeter Medical School (Truro base) to be the lead for a Special Study Unit which is run for Year 3 medical students. The module aims to give the students opportunities to understand how the standard of healthcare practice can be improved through effective team work and/or management either within the NHS or alternatively within an international healthcare setting. The students undertake placements in a variety of settings, have some core input on academic days, write an abstract and deliver a presentation based on their placement. The theme lead oversees this module. Their role includes being responsible for organising three academic days a year for the students, liasing with the providers of the student placements and providing remediation for any students that fail the module. This role would be ideal for someone who has perhaps done some teaching in the past but would like to develop this aspect of their career further. 50 hours a year are allocated for this role.
