Location: Cardiff
Salary: £32,570 to £56,395 per annum (Clinical Academic Salary Scale: D1)
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 9th September 2019
Closes: 7th October 2019
Job Ref: 8865BR

This successful and established Scheme has been running for eighteen years, providing a rolling programme of two-year posts for four General Practitioners at any one time. It is based in Cardiff and South East Wales, within the Division of Population Medicine which has an internationally competitive track record in research, and makes a significant contribution to undergraduate and postgraduate education.

The Scheme would suit any GP qualified to work in Wales who wanted to learn about teaching, critical appraisal and research, and be sponsored to gain a further qualification of their choice, whilst delivering much needed support to practices in disadvantaged areas to improve patient care.

No previous academic experience is required, as there is a high level of support from senior staff, both academically, and clinically. In addition the strong and cohesive team of Associate Academic Fellows provides plenty of peer support.

Thirty seven Fellows have been, or are in post, the majority having achieved research publications, and postgraduate qualifications in a wide range of areas, and all have had valuable undergraduate teaching experience. To date one hundred and fifteen Associate Academic Fellow attachments have supported practices to improve their patient care.

Typically an Associate Academic Fellow will go on to practice in deprived areas while maintaining links with the Division of Population Medicine, in teaching and research. They also are highly likely to teach undergraduates in their practices and become GP trainers. Some have moved into Public Health and medical management.
