SAS Doctors ES Supervisor Project
In view of the establishment of the local medical school in Kent (KMMS: Kent & Medway Medical School), the Trust is keen to be a key participant in the delivery of the undergraduate medical education and training for the students commencing in September 2022/3.
The Trust SAS Faculty is planning to launch a pilot clinical teaching and educational supervisor programme for a dozen of our SAS Doctors as a pilot cohort, and if successful, there will be further opportunities made available for other aspiring SAS doctors.
This programme requires a commitment of 3 full days of skill based workshops for effective clinical teaching followed by 2 further days for educational supervision which will take place at the RCP, London. This Programme is fully funded by the Trust. On successful completion of the full programme you will be assigned students from KCL initially, and then from KMMS. The full 5 days will need to be taken from your study leave entitlement.
The first workshop will take place on the 23rd October 2019 (details below).
Please see the attached application form which will need to be completed and returned by the 31st May 2019 at the very latest to Catherine Kidd. A selection process will take place and all applicants will be duly notified by 28th June 2019.
