20111209 Urgent Call for Psychiatry Instructors for Year 2 Clinical Skills

Call for instructors for Psychiatry Clinical Skills II

With the ongoing expansion of our medical school we need your help more than ever!

Psychiatry Clinical Skills II is a 4 week seminar series with 6 or 7 second-year medical students. The course is designed to teach them the fundamentals of the clinical interview. Each session will last 3-1/2 hours (1:00-4:30) on four consecutive Wednesdays or Fridays. Courses will start on January 11th and run through May 11th, 2012.

Instructors will be remunerated for 18 hrs of teaching (14 hours of scheduled teaching plus 4 additional hours for marking, one hour per session). Clinical faculty will be compensated for “teaching without patient care” in accordance with the “UBC Clinical Faculty 2010 – 2013 Compensation Terms”: The 18 hrs of teaching a seminar are credited as 36 hours for purposes of UBC accreditation in recognition of the increased workload compared to bedside student teaching.

Seminars will be held at VGH, St Paul’s, UBC, Richmond General Hospital, Royal Columbian Hospital, and Riverview – basically we‘ll send the students to wherever you and the patients are. Tutors are asked to recruit patients from the inpatient psychiatric units for the interviews.
