About the role
Mater Health and Mater Education are pleased to offer a unique training opportunity for a Simulation Education Fellow in Obstetrics and Gynaecology.
Mater recognises that whilst teaching is a key component of the role of a specialist there is no formal education in this area.
Mater is a leader in the area of team-based and technical skill simulation training and research, and is home to a state-of-the-art simulation centre, affiliated with the world renowned Centre for Medical Simulation in Boston.
Commencing in February 2021, this unique role will enable one Senior Registrar to obtain formal qualifications in Health Professions Education during their training, whilst working as a junior specialist in a supported transition to consultant.
Salary range: Commensurate with experience
What you’ll be doing
The simulation and education component of this role will involve teaching students, RMOs, registrars and consultants, utilising a wide variety of educational modalities with a heavy focus on simulation. During the 12 month role, the successful candidate will be provided with professional development support to obtain post graduate qualifications in health professions education. This includes participation in the Harvard affiliated Centre for Medical Simulation’s Simulation Instructor Course.
The clinical component of this role provides the opportunity to act as a relieving Consultant and to practice independently, supervising registrars and residents as a Specialist supported by senior colleagues. There may also be an opportunity to participate in the Mater’s Flying O&G Service, comprising week-long gynaecology-focussed rotations to rural and regional Queensland.
New Fellows (who have FRANZCOG, or are expected to attain FRANZCOG in early 2021) are encouraged to apply.
