Opening Date:
26 Nov 2021
Closing Date:
13 Jan 2022
Salary Range:

We are seeking to appoint a Subject External Examiner for the Pre-registration BSc (Hons) Diagnostic Radiography with Foundation Ultrasonography and the ultrasound modules in the postgraduate MSc Medical Imaging, once approval is complete.

These programmes are based within the Peninsula Medical School, Faculty of Health. The BSc programme is a full time 3-year undergraduate programme, which on successful completion leads to eligibility to register with the Health and Care Professionals Council. This position does require the external examiner to be a HCPC registered Diagnostic Radiographer, with a post-graduate specialism in Ultrasound.

The appointment will be for 4 years from 01/08/2022 and the commitment required is as follows:

  • To review a range of coursework throughout the year
  • To attend an assessment panel per year and the submission of an annual external examiner report
  • To engage in communication with the programme team
  • To carry out at least one interim engagement per year (which may take the form of a ‘virtual’ visit by video conference/Skype in recognition of the logistical difficulties presented by Plymouth’s geographical location) and at least one face to face visit during the term of office to obtain feedback from staff and students on assessment in practice and to strengthen their engagement with the ongoing teaching and learning process.

All appointments are subject to the candidate meeting the University’s criteria for appointment. If you would like to be considered for this role, please submit a CV by email to health-extex@plymouth.ac.uk by 13 January 2022 or for further information about the role email jennifer.jones@plymouth.ac.uk
