GPST visiting lecturers

We would like to hear from you in you are a trainee GP in your fourth or fifth year and wish to gain experience in teaching and learning.

The University of Leeds in collaboration with the Health Education Yorkshire and Humber are offering a number of visiting lecturer posts that aim to integrate trainees in their final two years of GP training into an academic environment.

This offers successful candidates the opportunity to deliver teaching to undergraduate medical students as part of the third year primary care curriculum and also to complete our series of continuing professional development workshops. The programme will combine online learning packages with practical workshops designed to equip you to more effectively teach your undergraduate medical students. The sessions will allow the development of teaching skills and will increase your knowledge and awareness of the learning needs of students in the context of their year group and our curriculum.

The visiting lecturer scheme offers trainees who are excelling in their training an opportunity to be challenged and develop lifelong teaching and learning skills that can be applied straight away at half-day release (HDR) sessions, an experience that we hope will encourage them to continue to be involved in education throughout their clinical practice.

  • You will need to be on the GP Specialty Trainee (GPST) scheme for the whole duration of your visiting lecturer post.
  • You will be required to attend an induction day in September of the year you start. This typically lasts half a day.
  • You will also need to be available for five half-day teaching sessions focussed on consultation skills, spread out over the year. We offer two alternative dates for each session in order to make it possible for you to attend.

Applications are closed for this year but if you are interested in being part of next year's scheme, please contact Lizzie Luff.
