Recruiting Clinical Tutors in Patient Safety Education


The Centre for Medical Education at the School of Medicine, Cardiff University, are inviting applications from Wales trainees (Foundation Year 2 doctors and above) with an interest in medical education to support final year medical students to learn about patient safety.

The Changing Practice project requires students to take structured medication histories from patients whilst they are on clinical placement. The project is designed to enable the student to improve on taking medication histories and explore with patients if they do not take any of their prescribed medicines (so called ‘non-adherence’). During workshop sessions, Clinical Tutors will facilitate students to work through a series of common scenarios from acute (general medical and surgical) and community settings to explore the implications of non-adherence.

You will receive training prior to the workshops, which will be useful for you in clinical practice, and receive a certificate for your professional development portfolio. For those seeking to expand on their teaching responsibilities and skills, we will be seeking to identify high-performing tutors to be supported to develop educational content (lectures, workshops) on patient safety for the following academic year.

Before applying, we emphasise that it is a requirement that you will be able to attend the Changing Practice lecture day on November 20th 2017 to deliver workshops to the students as well as provide virtual support (email / Skype) to student project groups during December – February 2017.

To apply, please complete the application form by October 6th 2017:

Shortlisted applicants will be invited to submit a short CV and to attend an interview via Skype from October 9-13th 2017.
