If you’re interested in gaining more teaching experience, Clinical Skills and MBChB Assessment, in Edinburgh Medical School, are always on the look-out for people who are keen to help with teaching and exams.  They can be contacted at clinical.skills@ed.ac.uk and MBChbAssessment@ed.ac.uk respectively. 

Edinburgh Medical School would also welcome anyone who is interested in helping with Communication teaching.  Sessions are run in Little France, the Western General Hospital and in Edinburgh University's central campus.  For more information, please contact sarah.collins@ed.ac.uk or bryan.allan@ed.ac.uk

You may prefer to contribute to the teaching of Edinburgh medical students on a particular module.  The downloadable document on this page lists the modules in Years 1 to 6 and the Module Organisers and Local Module Leads can be contacted through one of the following:-

The Student Wellbeing Team recruit Early Year Guides (Years 1 and 2) and Professional Advisors (Years 4 to 6) to provide a friendly face and pastoral support for a small group of students. If you'd like to apply, information on these roles and who to contact is on our Student Wellbeing page under the Resources tab.

Edinburgh Medical School employ Clinical Tutor Associates (CTAs) to tutor medical students.  Information on the role and who to contact if you'd like to apply can be found on our Clinical Tutor Associate (CTA) page under the Resources tab.
