Paediatric Undergraduate Regional Educators

Are you an East of England Paediatric Trainee interested in delivering teaching?

Have you heard of this unique opportunity to add a collaboration with the Health Education England (East of England) School of Paediatrics, the University of Cambridge, Anglia Ruskin University, and the University of East Anglia to your portfolio?

PURE (the Paediatric Undergraduate Regional Educators Programme) is a pilot project in the East of England, which needs paediatric educators to deliver small group teaching sessions to undergraduate medical students.

Educators participating in the pilot can expect to receive feedback and mentoring from members of the PURE community as well as training and support for their teaching.

The PURE community includes qualified paediatric consultants, experienced teaching leads within the medical education sector and Paediatric Educators from previous years.

Share our vision

Our long-term goal is to expand the PURE programme to every trust within the East of England, so that all paediatric trainees have the opportunity to develop their teaching, leadership and organisation skills.

And so that all medical students can reap the benefits of receiving peer group teaching sessions from junior doctors who can enthuse and sympathise about the rewards and challenges that come with a career in paediatrics.

Until then, our aim is to recruit as many trainees as possible who have or will be rotating into the Trusts who are currently taking this journey with us.
