Job Title:              Advanced Training Study Modules TPD

Specialty:             Obstetrics and Gynaecology

PA per week:     0.25 PA (total available, this may be split into two posts)

Location:            East Midlands

Post Number:  EM-OB-07

Applications are invited from Obstetrics and Gynaecology Consultants working within the East Midlands regions for this post on either a 0.25PA per week basis, or for half of the post at 0.125PA per week across part of the region.  Applicants must make it clear on what basis they are submitting their application.  

The role of  the Advanced Training Study Modules (ATSM) TPD is to work with and support the Head of School and Training Programme Directors in leading the delivery of the RCOG Advanced Training Study Modules in line with the Obstetrics and Gynaecology Curriculum 2019. 

The ATSM TPD will be aware of all training opportunities within the region and will co-ordinate trainee attachments, ensuring that all trainees can fulfil their ATSM training objectives.   The ATSM TPD must take responsibility for the quality management, standards and delivery of training of all ATSMs by working with ATSM preceptors to ensure the standards are delivered for their allocated ATSMs.  They will focus upon improvement of learner supervision, assessment and experience, engagement of faculty and ensuring effective educational outcomes, both now and in the future. The ATSM TPD will provide guidance to trainees regarding availability of ATSMs in the region, the region’s preferred selection process and what should happen if requests for an ATSM exceed the region’s training capacity.

The ATSM TPD is professionally and managerially accountable to the Head of School and will work across the spectrum of advanced obstetrics and gynaecology training, within the context of a team, so that the provision of education reflects changing service models. 


Applicants must be currently working within the East Midlands area at consultant level or equivalent in the specialty school area. Experience within the specialty at consultant level is essential as is considerable experience of working with learners or doctors in training in an educational context.

Our work is set within the Five Year forward view for the NHS and is defined by the HEE Mandate from Government. It is part of the consensus on how the NHS needs to change, with a key focus on prevention and a commitment to reducing health inequalities and promoting equality and diversity.

The length of appointment will be for 36 months at the first instance.
