Opportunity for tutoring 2nd year medical students:
Clinical SSC2a tutors whose colleges have a CPD matrix may find it useful to map their SSC2a tutoring time to this (17 hours formally recognised by the University). It is also a great way to show clearly identifiable SPA time output, and useful for discretionary points applications.
The role of tutor remains minimally onerous (~15 hours over 10 weeks, plus ~2 hours assessment and feedback) and generally a very rewarding one, guiding a group of enthusiastic 2nd years in investigating the medical/scientific literature on a topic of your choice, and creating an online review of the topic.
The module will start on 28th September 2015 and run for approximately 10 weeks, until 7th December 2015, meeting the students for a 1-2 hour session on a Monday or a Tuesday sometime between 10.30 am and 1 pm, most weeks. You do not have to meet the students every week, so it doesn’t matter if you’ll be away at some stage in that period (and you can always do it jointly with a co-tutor). However, the first few weeks are critical, and you need to be available to do ~ 2 hours of marking between 7th December and 15th December 2015.
