Visiting Lecturer Scheme

Visiting Lecturer Scheme

The highly successful Visiting Lecturer (VL) scheme at the University of Leeds has been established with GPST Doctors for over 10 years and has recently been expanded to include Internal Medicine Trainees (IMT). This initiative is recognised by Higher Education England.

Successful candidates will work within the Medical School as part of their Study Leave allocation to support teaching across the MBChB course. Visiting Lecturers should have a passion for education and be keen to expand their knowledge and skills in teaching through bespoke training, feedback, and mentoring from experts at the University. The Leeds Institute of Medical Education (LIME) is a vibrant environment for learning and teaching with an international profile of excellence. The Institute holds 6 ASPIRE to excellence awards from the Association of Medical Educators Europe (ASMEE) and benefits from a wealth of experience and a strong track record of scholarship in medical pedagogy.
