Teaching Fellow in Medical Ethics for Medical Students – University of Leeds


Teaching Fellow in Medical Ethics for Medical Students – University of Leeds

Are you an academic, or professional medical practitioner, with proven abilities to carry out teaching in medical ethics?

As Teaching Fellow you will primarily carry out small-group tutorial teaching to medical students at all levels, in the area of medical ethics. You will also participate in the assessment of student work related to this teaching. In addition you will carry out small-group teaching to students on the Physician Associates Programme. You will undertake related administration (e.g. attendance at moderation committee). You may also be asked, if time permits, to contribute to relevant modules in the School of Philosophy, for example, the level 2 module, ‘The Ethics of Life and Death’ and/or to dissertation supervision in relevant areas. As the role develops, there may in future years be scope to expand the post to include more organisational and leadership responsibilities and to deputise for the current academic leader of the programme. 

You will have a postgraduate qualification in medical or bioethics or closely related area; and either experience as a healthcare practitioner or else a good working knowledge, obtained by other means, of the legal and regulatory framework governing the practice of medicine in the UK. You will have relevant teaching experience. 

The post is part time.
