Undergraduate Medical Education requires committed and interested staff to enable medical and physician associate students to make the most of the teaching opportunities available.

We have a post for a Paediatric Nurse Teaching Fellow to join the team. This role will involve teaching alongside the current designated specialty teams while taking a lead in some of the more complex planning of the paediatric curriculum and delivery of key concepts of medical education.

This post offers the opportunity to gain broad teaching experience and paediatric specific planning and delivery of the curriculum. There are no existing designated clinical sessions as the post is 100% teaching.

Main duties of the job

The main duties of the role include planning, delivery and evaluation of the Medical Undergraduate Curriculum for Newcastle University medical students.

Candidates must be a NMC Registered Nurse with experience of autonomous working

Candidates must possess a Degree in a health care related or educational subject

They should be able to work as effectively as part of a team with both autonomous as well as delegated responsibilities. Prior involvement in undergraduate or other structured training/teaching is useful as the role involves being able to take a lead in teaching and learning activities, ensuring effective time management and having great organisational skills.

Good generic medical knowledge is essential, as well as good communication and interpersonal skills, and previous experience of working as a Nurse in a NHS setting.

We are available to meet prospective applicants and give them the opportunity to visit the hospital and meet colleagues with whom they will be working. We find this helps candidates to gain a greater understanding of the department and the post and also to find out whether they like the educational / hospital environment and culture and feel they would benefit from and be happy joining our team.
