Current Vacancies

Permanent Clinical Educators: Assistant Practice Educators and Practice Educators
Multiple Roles – Monday and Tuesday

The University College of Osteopathy (UCO) is the largest osteopathic educational institution in the UK and has come a long way in its first  100 years,  championing osteopathy and furthering the profession. The high quality teaching, evidence informed approach and excellent clinical opportunities attracts students and staff from around  the world.

The UCO clinic currently  has some exciting vacancies for osteopathic clinical educators and osteopaths who would like to develop into this role. We are keen to recruit into our new clinical roles  of Assistant Practice Educator (APE) and  Practice Educator (PE) . The APE role is ideal for osteopaths with little or no experience in teaching in a clinical setting and the PE role is ideal for a experienced osteopathic clinical educator wishing to build on their current experience.

We are looking for applicants who would like to take on a role or increase their time within the clinical setting and broaden their experience levels.  The roles are complex and rewarding and aim to provide a responsive yet variable clinical education experience within a community of practice.

Educators are responsible for providing guidance and mentoring of students on their osteopathic patient care, in line with the Osteopathic Practice Standards (OPS) and are expected to provide exemplars of best practice to developing students. They are empowered to create an environment that is encouraging and objective, enabling a critically informed and professional dialogue. In addition, they are tasked with the duty of providing leadership as an osteopath and as an educator. They must ensure that not only are the students supported but also patients are managed safely and effectively, thus contributing to the effective running of the clinic.

We are open to applications from those who already have experience in the clinical teaching setting and from those osteopaths who are new to this role and would like to develop the skills and gain experience as a clinical educator.
