  • Educational Facilitator (PBL Facilitator/Clinical Skills Tutor)

     

    Core Educational Facilitator    

    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 2 fixed sessions per week, for PBL/Clinical Skills facilitation during the Phase I academic term. This opportunity is for a Year 2 tutor in Hull working on a Tuesday and Friday afternoon. 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.

    There are also opportunities for tutors to be involved in other activities, such as admissions and assessment.

    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.

    Marie Cohen, Interim Director of PBL (marie.cohen@hyms.ac.uk) or Janine Henderson (Janine.henderson@hyms.ac.uk) can be contacted for an informal discussion.

    The Hull York Medical School (HYMS) has an exciting opportunity for an ambitious Marketing and Communications Manager who can make a real difference to the success of a young medical school with an agenda for growth in teaching and research.

    HYMS is a collaboration between the Universities of Hull and York and the NHS, which works across University campuses, teaching hospitals and medical practices throughout the Yorkshire and Humber region. Our graduates are recognised as being very capable Foundation Doctors, many of whom stay locally and contribute to health care services in the region. For the last two years, HYMS has been in the top 10 for overall student satisfaction in the National Student Survey (2014 and 2015). HYMS also delivers a growing portfolio of postgraduate taught programmes and short courses, including a training programme for Physician Associates.

    In the national Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014), over 85% of research across HYMS was assessed as world leading or internationally excellent. HYMS has ambitious plans for research growth in biomedical, applied health and clinical research at the University of Hull, including the establishment of an interdisciplinary Institute for Clinical and Applied Health Research (ICAHR). Similarly in York, HYMS is growing its research in key areas of enquiry, including mental health services research and immunology & infection.

    HYMS’ future development is being supported and enabled by a £28m investment in a new Health Campus development at the University of Hull, including the prestigious Allam Medical Building, which is under construction and due to open in Autumn 2017.

    We are seeking an experienced marketing and communications specialist who will continue to improve HYMS’ external relations, PR, internal communications and promotional activities.  There will be a significant initial emphasis on digital marketing, social media and communicating the HYMS brand. You will orchestrate a programme of activities, lead the School’s marketing and communications team and join the School’s Management Board. You will advise the Dean, Deputy Dean and Chief Operating Officer on all aspects of marketing and communications.

    We are seeking a dynamic individual comfortable with navigating across a range of organisations and able to gain support and trust across our partnership. You will need to build excellent working relationships with marketing teams at the Universities of Hull and York in order to co-ordinate activities, maximise benefit and work as efficiently as possible. You will need to have excellent interpersonal and partnership working skills and be able to prioritise activities based on evidence of impact. You must also be able to use initiative and work effectively under pressure whilst maintaining the highest levels of quality.

    This is a great opportunity for the right person to help shape and deliver the future vision of the Hull York Medical School.

    The role will be primarily based at the University of Hull, with an expectation that you will also establish a regular presence at the University of York (e.g. 1 day per week by agreement), with occasional travel as required to the School’s NHS sites in the region.

    For an informal discussion please contact John Busby, HYMS’ Chief Operating Officer (john.busby@hyms.ac.uk, tel: 01904 321648 / 01482 464708).

    Institute of Clinical and Applied Health Research - Research Development Manager

    The Hull York Medical School (HYMS) and the Faculty of Health and Social Care (FHSC) at the University of Hull have an exciting opportunity for an outstanding individual to help develop the research of the new Institute for Clinical & Applied Health Research (ICAHR) at the University of Hull.

    We have ambitious plans for research growth in biomedical, applied health, clinical research and health technology at the University of Hull. This growth is supported and enabled by a £28m investment by the University of Hull in a new Health Campus development and the establishment of the Institute for Clinical and Applied Health Research (ICAHR). The formation of the Institute will be accompanied by a major investment in academic and clinical academic staff, and the establishment of strong methods and support infrastructure (statistics, trials, etc.). From Autumn 2017, the Institute will be partly based in the brand new Allam Medical building, which is currently under construction. Alongside this investment, HYMS and FHSC will establish themselves as two Schools within a new Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Hull, which will form by August 2017.

    HYMS’ academic and clinical researchers at the University of Hull have a strong reputation for the quality and impact of their work, with research areas spanning applied health (including health inequalities, and palliative care), clinical specialisms (including respiratory, cardiology, vascular surgery, diabetes and cancer), and biomedical research. FHSC has a rapidly expanding research portfolio with a focus on major disease, health problems and health technology. Both faculties were top performers in the University of Hull’s REF 2014.

    We are seeking an experienced research development professional with specialist knowledge of clinical and applied health research and funders to support research development and growth in the new Institute. Your principal responsibilities will be to support Associate Deans for Research, School Directors of Research, academic and clinical staff and the University of Hull’s Director of Research to co-ordinate large collaborative proposals and other major initiatives. You will also seek to further develop strategic research links with the Hull & East Yorkshire NHS Hospitals Trust (HEY) and other NHS partners.

    We are seeking a dynamic individual comfortable with navigating across a range of organisations and able to gain the support and trust of a wide range of academic and clinical colleagues and funders. You will need to have excellent interpersonal and partnership working skills and sufficient resilience to apply yourself in a changing environment as the Institute and new Faculty of Health Sciences are translated from vision to reality. You will need to be highly organised and skilled at prioritising, and you must be able to use initiative and work effectively under pressure.

    This is an outstanding opportunity for the right person to help shape and deliver the future vision of the Institute of Clinical and Applied Health Research. The role will be primarily based at the University of Hull, but will involve a regular presence in the Daisy Building at Castle Hill Hospital alongside the HEY R&D Office, together with occasional travel to other HYMS sites including the University of York.

    To apply for this position, please submit a current CV and covering letter with your online application.

    For an informal discussion please contact John Busby, HYMS’ Chief Operating Officer (john.busby@hyms.ac.uk, tel: 01904 321648 / 01482 464708), or Dr Maggie McGowan, University of Hull Director of Research (M.McGowan@hull.ac.uk).
