Increasingly, doctors at Registrar level take a year or two out of training in order to gain research or teaching experience. Most doctors don’t venture far from home for this experience but a few are particularly adventurous, seeking new cultural perspectives in addition development of their lab and teaching skills. If this sounds like someone you know, they may be interested in one of two international fellowship opportunities available at Ningbo University, China.
Registars are invited to apply for teaching and fellowship experience in the Medical School of Ningbo University on year long placements from September 2013. The medical education fellowship will involve giving lectures and running practicals in the basic and clinical sciences. Thankfully language skills are not essential, as the courses are in English for the international students. The University will support the candidate in completion of a Postgraduate Qualification in medical education on a distance learning basis.
The other fellowship opportunity is in Cancer Cell Biology translational research. The fellow will have the opportunity to gain experience of laboratory cancer research, to engage in programme development, develop enhanced team-working skills and to publish work to which they contribute.
