Do You Want To Be Part Of Our Team?
Are you an Actor, Role-player or retired Clinician who would like to get involved in our ACE training programmes?
We are looking for people with the following attributes
The Associate Clinical Educator (ACE) successfully combines the role of the simulated patient and lay teacher involved in the training of health professionals of all kinds. From medical students to physician associates, from dental students to nurses and many, many more.
The ACE is a hands on resource for the student. They provide the student a chance to get quite literally hands on with an experienced simulated patient. It gives the student the opportunity to put into practice the theory they learn in the classroom from tutors and medical textbooks. The opportunity for them to work with a ‘real person’ who can present as a healthy patient or one who has a variety of pathologies.
ACEs are not clinicians, and their backgrounds are varied. Some may have a background in performance and others in teaching. Some are already medical role players, but this is not a requirement. The desire to teach and assist students in order to help them become better and safer clinicians is our chief priority. An ACE should therefore be able to give structured feedback to the student in a way that helps them learn and improve their skill sets.
An ACE of course has their own skill sets to learn too, and with that in mind we are putting a campaign together to recruit new role players and ACEs to the organisation. So, whatever your background, there may be a place in Meducate Academy for you.
We are therefore going to be running a number of small group ACE trainings in our City Centre venue and online. We have training programmes that are designed to get you up to speed in no time at all. You will then work alongside our more experienced people to consolidate those skills. All of our ACEs and roleplayers are self-employed and payment is made by invoice. We pay industry standards and some of our ACEs work most weeks of the year.
We are also on the lookout for experienced clinicians to work alongside our ACEs. Contact us about this very important role.
Good rates, good conditions and a successful and helpful team are waiting for you to join them.
