Are you interested in supporting the personal and professional development of

medical students at Leeds? Do you have experience of mentoring or coaching,

teaching undergraduate medical students on placement, healthcare delivery,

leadership or audit and service improvement?

The SAFER MEDIC strand of the Year 3 curriculum has been designed to equip students to view clinical situations to take account of the relevant clinical and related issues, so they can progress to deliver effective patient care. Tutors are paired with another tutor and their group for the Year 3 SAFER MEDIC sessions, which run approximately every 5 weeks on Wednesday mornings from 8.30am until 11am (usually 6 meetings in total from September to May). Tutor guides are available for all of these sessions and will be made available on appointment.

Students learn to approach each clinical encounter through the following five learning areas:

• Safety

• Awareness (self/social/cultural)

• First principles (fundamental/applied science) ► reflecting, learning

• Ethical/legal aspects

• Research/knowledge gaps

Students are then able to consider the situation as a whole in order to make the best possible management decisions. Under the guidance of their tutors they will learn to work as a group to identify, research, present and discuss these issues. This helps them approach the clinical encounter through the following framework:

• Meeting

• Examining

• Diagnosing

• Investigating

• Communicating

About the employer

The University of Leeds is a public research university in Leeds, West Yorkshire, England. It was established in 1874 as the Yorkshire College of Science. In 1884 it merged with the Leeds School of Medicine (established 1831) and was renamed Yorkshire College. It became part of the federal Victoria University in 1887, joining Owens College (which became the University of Manchester) and University College Liverpool (which became the University of Liverpool). In 1904 a royal charter was granted to the University of Leeds by King Edward VII.

The university has 36,330 students, the 5th largest university in the UK (out of 169). From 2006 to present, the university has consistently been ranked within the top 5 (alongside the University of Manchester, Manchester Metropolitan University, the University of Nottingham and the University of Edinburgh) in the United Kingdom for the number of applications received. Leeds had an income of £789.6 million in 2019/20, of which £139.9 million was from research grants and contracts. The university has financial endowments of £82.1 million (2019–20), ranking outside the top ten British universities by financial endowment.

Notable alumni include current Leader of the Labour Party Keir Starmer, former Secretary of State Jack Straw, former co-chairman of the Conservative Party Sayeeda Warsi, Piers Sellers (NASA astronaut) and six Nobel laureates.
