Do you want to truly advance in clinical practice and add real tangible value to patient care across Weston-Super-Mare, Worle and Surrounding Villages?

Well, why not come join us in this brand-new role for Pier Health.

We are looking for a dynamic, skilled, and autonomous clinician to develop our programme of work in the areas of advanced clinical leadership, education, and research.

You will be provided with a named mentor within the training academy.

There may be an opportunity to partake in a Post Graduate Certificate in Teaching and Learning for Health Professionals at Bristol University. Following successful completion, you can apply to the Academy of Medical Educators.
