RCSI clinical educators

Each year RCSI recruits over 90 clinical lecturers and tutors to posts in 16 clinical disciplines across 22 clinical sites.

Our clinical educators are critical to the successful delivery of our curriculum during students’ hospital-based clinical placements.

Why join RCSI as a clinical educator?

We offer excellent career development opportunities for our clinical teaching staff, including:

  • Funding for completion of an MD, PhD or MCh (by Research) with RCSI (available for eligible candidates)
  • Generous training allowances for approved courses 
  • Refunds of up to €450 on passing approved examinations 
  • Up to 14 days education leave for participation on approved training 

Contracts are 12 months in duration and may be extended for a further 12 or 24 months for the completion of a higher degree. In some cases, rotation between RCSI sites may be agreed between the staff member and the head of department.
