One of the best Universities for health education, Worcester has founded the distinctive Three Counties Medical School aiming to widen access to careers in medicine and retain graduates in the local area. The School's MBChB curriculum emphasises problem-based learning (PBL), early patient contact, programmatic assessment, and an emphasis on community-orientated clinical placements at every stage.

We now wish to appoint Clinical Teaching Fellows (CTFs) to support the on- going delivery of the curriculum across years 1 and 2 (Phase 1) to medical students on the graduate entry MBChB programme.
