This is your chance to join Kent and Medway Medical School in pioneering a new era of responsive, student-centred medical education. As Head of Anatomy, you will be an inspirational role model for the next generation of medical professionals – making a major contribution to the development and delivery of the undergraduate programme, introducing teaching innovation and championing the new Anatomy Learning Centre (ALC).
Kent and Medway Medical School (KMMS) has been created to be a beacon for first-class medical education and research. Bringing together the resources of the University of Kent and Canterbury Christ Church University, our whole ethos is one of partnership. The role of Head of Anatomy involves working in close collaboration with the ALC technical team, with an equivalent colleague at our curriculum’s parent institution, Brighton and Sussex Medical School, and with a wide range of internal and external leads.
You will provide the academic leadership, subject expertise, operational knowledge and skills required to establish the delivery of this discrete and specialist area of the curriculum and to ensure that the ALC reaches its full potential in enhancing the wider educational and research offering. This will include helping to establish and develop the ALC team and is sure to open up exciting future opportunities to influence and develop research activity in the anatomical sciences.
Coordinating all aspects of anatomical science teaching to undergraduate medical students - across gross anatomy, living and surface anatomy, neuro-anatomy and imaging - you will lead on the development of an intercalated BSc programme in Anatomy, as well as other learning opportunities in the discipline. Part of your role will be to ensure that the integrated, systems-based curriculum incorporates the disciplines of anatomy, histopathology and developmental biology across all modules, and you will be expected to provide academic guidance for Leads for Anatomy in other programmes, schools and faculties.
Taking this broader perspective will see you teaching gross anatomy to other undergraduate and postgraduate students, such as paramedics, physiotherapists, podiatrists, students of neuroscience, psychology and sports/exercise/physical science, and qualified healthcare professionals undertaking advanced practice programmes. You will also teach surgical anatomy to enable trainee surgeons to acquire the required knowledge for membership of the Royal College of Surgeons examinations.
To make your mark in this influential role, you must be an enthusiastic innovator with a healthy attitude to change and new challenges, plus a co-operative approach that matches our own. We expect you to be suitably qualified, with a specific interest and background in anatomical sciences, biosciences or healthcare education, plus in-depth understanding of current issues facing undergraduate medical education. Your experience will encompass significant academic leadership and management, together with curriculum design, implementation and evaluation – including a good grasp of national and international expectations – and sound understanding of quality assurance and enhancement.
