This is your chance to join Kent and Medway Medical School in pioneering a new era of responsive, student-centred medical education. As a Lead for specific assessment types you will be an inspirational and influential role model for the next generation of medical professionals.

Kent and Medway Medical School (KMMS) has been created to be a beacon for first-class medical education and research. Bringing together the resources of the University of Kent and Canterbury Christ Church University, our whole ethos is one of partnership. The role of Senior Lecturer/Lead involves working in close collaboration with our programme, academic and administrative teams across both Universities, as well as with the wider health education community and a variety of external bodies.

The KMMS curriculum follows a spiral model, with students building on the principles and concepts taught year by year - increasing the depth and range of topics learnt and ultimately graduating with the Outcomes for Graduates required by the GMC. Within this model, the Leads for Clinical and Professional Skills Assessments (OSCEs), Applied Knowledge Tests and Portfolio and Workplace based Assessments are absolutely key. 

We are now offering the following opportunities for people to lead and coordinate the design, development and delivery of specific types of assessment, in conjunction with the Lead for Assessment:

  • Lead for Portfolio and Workplace Based Assessments
  • Lead for Applied Knowledge Tests (AKT)
  • Lead for Clinical and Professional Skills Assessments (OSCEs)

In each case you will be making a major contribution to the development of the KMMS undergraduate medical programme assessment process. We are looking for enthusiastic innovators with a healthy attitude to change and new challenges, plus a co-operative approach that matches our own.

Whether you are clinically registered and practising or working in clinical and non-clinical roles in universities, you should have recent expertise in medical or healthcare education assessment, particularly in your area of specialty.
