Veterinary Clinical Teaching Fellow (Maternity Cover)

School of Veterinary Medicine

Location:  Guildford
Salary:  £32,817 to £40,322
(Fixed Term Position up until 28/02/2021)
Post Type:  Full Time
Advert Placed:  Wednesday 23 October 2019
Closing Date:  Sunday 24 November 2019
Reference:  084219

Here at the School of Veterinary Medicine, we have successfully established a high quality network of clinical practices to deliver a fully distributed model of work-place based clinical education.  By extensively partnering with the profession, we have developed an authentic, relevant and student-centred approach to clinical veterinary education.

Integral to this model are the Veterinary Clinical Teaching Fellows (VCTFs), our team of clinical tutors who provide oversight of individual development and evaluation of final year students toward attainment of day-one competences and support practice-based trained clinical mentors in the delivery of our IMR module.  This is achieved through regular and frequent practice visits to meet with clinical mentors and through the provision of one-to-one feedback and coaching of students.  As well as overseeing the successful development of the students’ portfolio, the VCTF team also play a key role in the assessment of final year students, and act to remediate where necessary. 

The VCTFs act as key university liaisons for the partner practices, and will be expected to develop strong working relationships with practice staff.  They provide pedagogical training of clinical mentors and contribute to the quality assurance of IMR delivery.

We are recruiting for fixed-term, maternity cover position in this VCTF role, on a full time basis.  Candidates will have a flair for communicating with both undergraduates and practitioners and a passion for veterinary clinical education.  Clinical coaching or academic experience is desirable but not essential for these roles as comprehensive educational training is provided during the induction process.

Informal enquiries are invited and should be directed to Emma Tallini ( or  Mike Cathcart (
