Job description

We are looking for an enthusiastic senior health professional with significant experience of planning & delivering simulation based education (SBE) to head up our simulation faculty, based at Falmer. This person would lead development of new activities, supervise members of the faculty and help deliver simulation at UG and PG level as part of the teaching portfolio. The successful applicant would be expected to have local and national connections through conference activity and running courses in SBME.

The delivery of postgraduate simulation at BSMS has developed considerably over the last 4 years. Funding from HEE (KSS) has allowed this area to encourage regional healthcare clinicians to attend the PG Certificate in Simulation. This course aims to furnish those involved in delivering SBE in local trusts with the educational background and skills to become ‘trainers’ aligned to national standards.

The successful candidate will become involved in supervising simulation based teaching on other courses within the DME portfolio e.g. Physician Associate Programme (which has well-established simulation strand), as well as workshops and CPD courses. The successful applicant will continue with an established research theme of their choice involving SBME.

Please contact Prof Gordon Ferns. G.Ferns@BSMS.ac.uk 01273 644743 for informal enquiries.
