This is your chance to join Kent and Medway Medical School (KMMS) in pioneering a new era of responsive, student-centred medical education.  We are seeking a Senior Lecturer in GP and Community Education to ensure that the community-based aspects of our undergraduate programme inspire the next generation of medical professionals.

KMMS opened to it first cohort to students in 2020 and is now teaching the first three years of the five year Bachelor of Medicine Bachelor of Surgery (BM BS) programme.

KMMS has been created to be a beacon for first-class medical education and research. Bringing together the resources of the University of Kent and Canterbury Christ Church University, the whole ethos is one of partnership. The role involves working in close collaboration with colleagues at both Universities, and the wider health education community, to create a positive and facilitative relationship with General Practice and Community Care providers across Kent and Medway.

Reporting to the Lead for GP and Community Education, you will be influencing and supporting the development and integration of the Community Based Learning and Teaching aspects of the KMMS medical undergraduate curriculum. This will require using evidence-based contemporary theory and methods in order to ensure that curriculum and learning outcomes – mapped to the skills, competencies and professional attributes required of a newly graduating Doctor as described by the GMC – are fully scoped and developed.

Achieving these objectives will necessitate the development and implementation of quality management processes – working closely with both academic and professional services colleagues – as well as developing, planning and delivering the ongoing support of the Practice areas and staff within the community-based aspects of the curriculum.

To make your mark in this exciting new role, you will have/be:

  • an enthusiastic innovator with a healthy attitude to change and new challenges, plus a co-operative approach that matches our own
  • suitably qualified, clinically registered and practising specialist in General Practice or Community Care (or equivalent)
  • a track record of excellence in teaching in a clinical or academic setting

Ideally, you will also have expert knowledge within the following: student selection, curriculum design, assessment (including admissions), use of portfolios in medical education, electronic learning and assessment, and inter-professional learning and assessment.

For informal enquiries: Please contact Catherine Neden, Lead for GP and Community Education on:
