All academic staff are expected to undertake teaching roles. Staff on ATR contracts are required to commit approximately 35% of their academic contract FTE to teaching related activities. This can include admissions interviews, taking a problem based learning (PBL) group, consultation skills teaching, personal advising and participation in assessment activities such as question writing, standard setting, marking and OSCE assessing.

All teaching activities are supported by training. To help you get started please review the CPD programme which itemises each area and the academic lead. To request a copy of the CPD programme, please email Ruth Flather.

We encourage all teaching staff to embrace the use of learning technology to enhance their teaching and the student experience. The Learning Technology Team provides dedicated, enthusiastic and expert help and we have seen self-confessed technophobes transformed into technophiles with their help!

A Brief Teaching Summary A Brief Teaching Summary


Teaching on MB BS (Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery) is organised across 15 modules and several themes, each with their own academic lead.  We are also organised by teaching style (Problem Based Learning or PBL; Consultation Skills, Student Selected Studies or SSS) with a coordinator, who will be able to provide you with help on what you are being asked to teach.

All academic staff in MED (other than those specifically appointed only to the ClinPsyD programmes) are expected to be familiar with MB BS course of study as you will be allocated advisees who you will support through this 5-year course.  In addition, staff are expected to contribute to teaching/assessment and student interviewing, alongside their research commitments.

A full programme of training supports all teaching modes on the MB BS as well as admissions interviews, assessments and personal advising. For further details of the MED CPD Programme please contact Ruth Flather. The CPD Programme will soon be available online.
