If you are Cambridge-based (Addenbrookes or Papworth) AND non-Paediatric
The applications process is a three-stage process:
- Watching the Recruitment video. This explains the Cambridge clinical course, what is expected of a clinical supervisor and generally how the clinical supervisor programme works.
- Submitting an application form
- Keeping your details up-to-date on the Reserve List
Once you have submitted your application form you will automatically be placed on the Reserve List.
Reserve List – Cambridge-based (Addenbrookes or Papworth) AND non-Paediatric
Once you are on the Reserve List you will be contacted ONLY when we have a suitable vacancy for an Undergraduate Clinical Supervisor. This means that you may not be contacted for a period of weeks or even months depending on the time of year you apply. Normally there are lots of vacancies towards the end of the Academic Year (AY) whereas there are fewer vacancies at other times of the year.
During the time that you are on the Reserve List it is your responsibility to let us know about any changes to your personal information, in particular your availability status. Once the appointment letter is sent to you, we will give you an appointment date and if we do not hear back from you within a few days of receipt of the letter to let us know that you are unable to take the group from the date appointed, we will take it as read that you are taking on the group and we will make changes to the various databases and systems you require in order to get you up and running in the role, such as CamSIS, CamCORS, Moodle and letting the Colleges and students concerned know that you are taking on the role. Payment for the supervisions you provide is done through the CamCORS system.
You should also notify us of any other changes such as your e-mail address/contact information or your hospital location. If your circumstances change and you will not be able to commit to the role, please do let us know straight away.
To remove yourself or make changes to your information on the Reserve List please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are based in one of our partner Regional Hospitals or in Addenbrookes Paediatrics
If you are based in one of our partner regional hospitals you will be contacted directly by the Administration Team at that hospital. Each hospital will have a different way of allocating clinical supervisors to groups, different systems for notifying them of changes and different terms for resigning from the post.
If you are in Paediatrics (based in Addenbrookes), the Paediatrics department will receive your application and you will be contacted directly by the Paediatrics Department. Where there are vacancies you will be allocated to a Year 4 group of students.
If you have any questions about how the process works in the regional hospital or paediatrics department you should contact them directly. You will find their details on the Partner Regional Hospitals and Paediatrics Department at Addenbrookes page.
You will be given access to the virtual learning environment, Moodle but you will not need access to CamCORS, which is the Cambridge Colleges Online Reporting System and is only applicable to Cambridge-based Undergraduate Clinical Supervisors. For payment when based at a regional hospital you should contact the relevant Administration Team.
Delivering your teaching (Cambridge-based and Regional hospital-based)
The University of Cambridge Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), Moodle is the place you will find information on what subjects to cover in your supervisions depending on the year group to which you are allocated. The supervisions you arrange should not clash with your supervision groups’ main teaching schedule, since this takes priority. You will need to liaise with your student group regarding this. You should be aware that you will frequently only have a small number of your group with you, since students do not return from other hospitals to attend your sessions. When your students are at other hospitals they will be receiving supervisions there instead.
Please see our guide to accessing Moodle for clinical supervisors.
