Located atop a hill nestled between Burnie’s private and public hospitals, overlooking Bass Strait, the Rural Clinical School (RCS) is a great place to work. RCS staff support and teach into the MBBS program for Year 4 and Year 5 students during their rural placement years.
Currently the RCS employs around 17 teaching clinicians, 13 administrative staff and two research fellows. Information about Clinical Academic and Honorary Appointments and processes are held with the School of Medicine (SoM). General staff vacancies are advertised regularly on the UTAS website.
RCS staff are supported and encouraged to engage with ongoing professional development. Academic staff are encouraged to improve teaching skills and engage with research opportunities and projects at the RCS.
Prospective staff are encouraged to access the UTAS ‘Staff Development and Training’ for further information.
The Medical Education Advisor at the RCS has created extensive Teaching and Learning Resources for our academic staff to access and utilise.
RCS IT support has also created a very comprehensive document for staff which details essential information on emailing, printing, MyLO, phones and videoconferencing (available upon request).
The Buttfield Library at the North West Regional Hospital (NWRH) has a collection of journals, books and online resources. The RCS' Teaching and Administration Facility at the Mersey Community Hospital (MCH) also has a library/resource room.
The University of Tasmania (UTAS) also provides a range of online tours and training materials for staff on library skills, academic and research skills, IT support and accessing help.
