The clinical teachers section is St George’s home for senior hospital doctors with core roles in undergraduate medical (MBBS) education. We all have active clinical roles as well, mainly in hospitals including St George’s and other associated NHS trusts across a range of disciplines including medical and surgical specialities, psychiatry and anaesthetics.
We also contribute to a range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses for medical and allied healthcare professionals locally, as well as at other UK centres and internationally, and link with clinical teachers in the hospitals supporting our programs. Research interests are also broad ranging, in our own specialist clinical areas as well as in education.
You will see that whatever your speciality, if you are passionate about delivering high quality education for our future medical workforce, there could be a role for you. As well as expertise in educational areas such as e-learning, assessment and medical education globally , you will see clinical teachers who are also research active in field such as epilepsy, patient experience, metabolic medicine, clinical pharmacology and more.
We work alongside a large body of NHS clinicians in partner trusts supporting and teaching our students on their clinical placements. Contributing to teaching and training doctors and students is a fundamental part of being a doctor, only a tiny minority of whom have core university roles. We have established relationships with educational leads at all our partner hospitals, and support those active in education throughout or network, including through our clinical teachers’ day and honorary academic contract processes.
