    HY0127 Clinical Education Facilitator Job Description .

    Our Educational Facilitators are a vital part of Phase I (years 1 and 2) for HYMS undergraduate students; in addition to facilitating PBL sessions and teaching core clinical skills, they take a key role in the students' personal and professional development during this time. As well as an enthusiasm for teaching and developing skills in our students, we are looking for clinicians who will inspire students to achieve their best, both academically and professionally, providing strong role models for their subsequent development.

    Successful applicants will be enthusiastic clinicians who are keen to develop their educational role; many will not already have experience of PBL or higher educational qualifications, but we welcome applications from those who are willing to undertake these.

    Applicants will need to commit to two fixed sessions per week, for PBL/Clinical Skills facilitation during the Phase I academic term and will be based at either the Hull or the York site. We expect tutors to commit to all dates within the academic terms. Tutors are expected to contribute an additional extra half session/week for preparatory work, paid for within the contract. We also expect tutors to be involved in admission & assessment activities. Corresponding lighter work is required outside academic terms; the overall annualised commitment is 0.2 FTE. The 0.2 FTE work comprises

    · A fixed number of actual PBL/ Clinical Skills sessions = 54 sessions per annum (27 weeks)

    · Preparation for PBL sessions = 13.5 sessions

    · Additional time to participate in staff development and to contribute to wider HYMS curriculum development (review, assessment, evaluation, admissions etc) = 13 sessions

    Our Educational Facilitators (PBL/Clinical Skills Tutors) are under the direct line management of the PBL Director. Tutors are supported with their tutoring and student support roles. The PBL Director organises a robust programme of training, peer support and observation.

    Training will be given in both PBL facilitation & Clinical Skills teaching.
