We are inviting applications for a 6-month 1.0 FTE full-time (or 2 or more part-time) Anatomy Demonstrator position(s) from enthusiastic individuals, keen to help our students advance their anatomy knowledge and understanding in an applied context.
The Anatomy Demonstrator post is a developmental opportunity to join our core anatomy education team, to help provide students with support, guidance and high quality anatomy teaching and learning.
Anatomy teaching and learning at the Peninsula Medical School is clinically applied, including topographical and functional anatomy and neuroanatomy.
The Anatomy Demonstrator(s) will primarily teach topographical and functional anatomy, but there is a potential to extend into medical imaging and histology, given appropriate knowledge and experience.
The majority of teaching occurs in small groups, providing you with an opportunity to facilitate hands-on, interactive sessions combining cutting-edge technology, such as the Anatomage system, with topography, working with our team of Model Patients.
We follow a constructively-aligned teaching paradigm, teaching anatomy in the way doctors see it in practice.
Our spiral curriculum encourages deep learning of subjects that are expanded on in different contexts and further depth, through each year of the course, ensuring our students are equipped fully to pursue any specialty they prefer.
We expect you to have excellent anatomy knowledge, interpersonal and communication skills and a willingness to develop your knowledge and skills in anatomy education. You will be supported in your training needs. This role offers you an exciting opportunity to develop your educational scholarship and research practice.
This job would be suitable for those seeking to obtain experience in, and further their knowledge and understanding of anatomy and medical education, or those with ambitions to develop and pursue a university clinical teaching role in the future. We welcome applications from those with either a medical/healthcare background or with formal human anatomy expertise and teaching experience.
The primary teaching focus is on the undergraduate Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (BMBS), BMBS with Foundation Year), Diagnostic Radiography (BSc) and postgraduate Physician Associate Studies (MSc) programmes, although there may also be opportunities to provide teaching to clinical and allied health profession staff within the NHS.
