REGIONAL EDUCATION FELLOW POSTS

These posts are NOT part of the Advanced Training Modules and are not in the group of 2010 Curriculum Advanced Training Modules.   They are in-programme and run concurrently with clinical training.
Please read the job descriptions describing each post carefully and approach each of them with an open mind. They are all quite different and all strong in their own ways.  Pay particular attention when deciding to the clinical content of these posts. During these posts you need to continue to get clinical competencies signed off.

Please note, to apply for these posts you need to be in ST5 or above.    Those of you who are planning to undertake advanced ICM training are eligible to apply.

If you want advice in how it fits in with where you are in your training please talk to the tRAINING Programme Director.

 

 

Department of Anaesthesia, James Cook University Hospital

 

Post:    Education Fellows

Please note that we appoint the Education Fellow posts for August and February at the same time. This is because you need to be enrolled onto the Cert Med Ed in October as there is only one intake each academic year. If you wish to be considered for the Fellows Post in February 2017, you need to apply now so that you are able to start the Certificate in October 2016.

 

Job Description

Education Fellows are appointed for 6 months, and count as time in programme. These are aimed at post-Fellowship trainees. Previous Fellows have had no difficulties in satisfying ARCP requirements. Unlike some university-based Education Fellows posts, this is not a purely educational post without clinical contact.

There are 2 places reserved on the Newcastle Certificate in Clinical Education (http://www.ncl.ac.uk/postgraduate/course/36), which will be funded up to £950  per 6-month post by the Academic Department of Anaesthesia, subject to satisfactory performance. Study leave funding has also been approved in the past for this. If anyone already has the Certificate and wishes to progress to the Diploma level, funding is also likely to be available.

Educational responsibilities available are as follows:

Undergraduate Teaching Commitments

Based at Durham University Stockton Campus and JCUH. Coordinate and deliver established undergrad anaesthetic teaching: ‘Cardiovascular, Respiratory Renal’ module, ‘Foundations of Clinical Practice’, and ‘Hospital Based Practice’ depending on the program running at the time in post.

Postgraduate Teaching Commitments

New starter course

Postgraduate exam courses

Dedicated theatre sessions are available where you can have a junior trainee to teach.

Research Commitments

Involvement in education research in conjunction with Durham University Stockton Campus, continuation of ongoing research projects.

There is a SimMan simulator at James Cook with a new dedicated Simulator suite attached to theatres. There is an additional 3G SimMan at Durham University Stockton Campus, and a simulator suite at Teesside University. It is expected that the Fellow will gain experience and have responsibilities to this also.

There is opportunity to develop additional teaching programs as necessary.

Clinical Commitments

Full participation in on-call rota at appropriate level.

Supervised clinical sessions in any of the specialities at JCUH as appropriate, depending on training requirements of the trainee. Previous fellows have also been able to sign off clinical modules depending on the normal appropriate evidence of training.

Previous Fellows have all achieved National presentations or publications, and all have obtained the Certificate.

Post:   Specialist Trainee Education/ Teaching Module: Job Description

General

This 3-month module is suitable for a senior (post-fellowship) anaesthetic trainee who has an interest in medical education. It is “in-programme” and will consist of up to 1-2 daytime sessions per week dedicated to “educational activity” (see below). The exact roles and responsibilities, together with the timetabling arrangements are “flexible”

Supervisor:  Dr David Mayne, Consultant Anaesthetist, Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Gateshead.

Application

In the event of demand exceeding availability, there will be a competitive selection process based on certain criteria (available from supervisor)

It would probably not be appropriate to do this module in the same 6 months as doing a 3-month ITU intermediate training block, as this would result in a shortfall in general theatre experience.

An added advantage would be prior, or concurrent, study towards the Certificate of Clinical Education (or a similar qualification)..

Objectives and Expected Learning Outcomes

The trainee will be expected to become familiar with the following skills/knowledge:

Responsibilities

It is expected that trainees will organise their time appropriately and seek out educational opportunities from the wide variety of activities which are taking place in the dept. Time will be allocated appropriately on the rota where possible. Trainees should liase with rotamakers well in advance to organise their time. Such opportunities could involve:

Assessment and Feedback

The trainee will be expected to keep an “educational portfolio” during the module to record all educational activity, and produce a written summary of his/her achievements at the end of the module. This could incorporate feedback from trainers and students/ junior trainees, together with evidence such as videos of sessions.

The trainee is expected to develop different aspects of the module for the benefit of future trainees

Practical information on Medical Students Attachment

Associate Clinical Sub Dean for Gateshead is Fiaz Ahmad (also lead for Hospital Based Practice [5th Year Module] and Foundations of Clinical Practice [3rd Year Module]). There are a number of opportunities for involvement in Undergraduate medical education.

There are undergraduates at the Queen Elizabeth throughout the year, with Newcastle Medical School placements, Specialist Anaesthetic and Critical Care modules and Elective Students from other parts of the Country. All of these provide excellent opportunities for a mixed style of teaching.

SpR’s who are with us from February to August, will be involved in the extensive teaching programme attached to Hospital Based Practice. Simulation based training is becoming an increasing part of this.

Help in organisation and implementation of OSCE’s and MOSLER based examinations (including mocks) is encouraged.

Pastoral care and opportunities for clinical and educational supervision will also be available during the module.
