Academic Medical Education Foundation Programmes
We currently provide twelve Academic Medical Education Foundation Training posts as part of a two year F1-F2 linked Academic Medical Education Foundation Programme based in the Medical Teaching Unit attached to the Department of Medical Education. Candidates can apply for one of four Academic Medical Education Foundation Rotations.
The F1 year of 3 x 4-month clinical posts is followed by an F2 year divided into 3 x 4-month posts. The trainee undertakes clinical training in 2 x 4-month blocks and spends one 4-month block undertaking an Academic Medical Education placement. Trainees undertake a range of duties depending on the time of year, including supervision of anatomy practical classes, demonstration of physiology practicals and clinical skills and small group teaching of clinical skills and tutorial work including the Integrated Learning Activities (ILA).
Teaching training is provided by the Academic Department of Medical Education and there is the opportunity to undertake a Certificate in Medical Education.
Please note that the timing of the Medical Education placement will determine the content of the post. If you have any queries regarding this, please contact Dr Michelle Marshall
