Medical student teaching
There are a variety of ways of getting involved in medical student teaching from small group tutorials at the medical school to clinical teaching in practices (which can be done by partners, salaried Gps or long term locums with a regular connection to a practice).
Small Group Work at Peninsula Medical School
This takes the form of either PBL (Problem Based Learning) tutor, or Jigsaw tutor to small groups of students from 1st through to 4th year. Part of the position is also to act as academic tutor to a handful of students.
PMS provides training and update sessions throughout your contract, and there is provision of resources for support and guidance on the medical school website.
Posts are usually advertised in April/May each year at http://hr.pcmd.ac.uk/vacancies.php
Teaching in practices
There are opportunities are to teach medical students as well as GP trainees. This can often be quite ad hoc, but if you are a sessional GP or find yourself covering a long term locum, you may find yourself involved with students on a regular basis at any of the training practices in the area. Teaching students in this environment is a practice committment, but it requires one GP to organise the attachment and provide the majority of teaching.
