Malaysia Skyline

Newcastle University, UK has established an international branch campus in EduCity, Nusajaya, Johor, to provide undergraduate degrees in Medicine (MBBS), the Biomedical Sciences (BSc), and opportunities for postgraduate study. The branch campus is known as Newcastle University Medicine Malaysia (NUMed Malaysia). The NUMed Malaysia branch campus is an integral component of Newcastle University, which is a founder member of the UK ‘Russell Group’. Newcastle is a long established world-class research intensive university, delivering teaching and research externally confirmed as of the highest international quality.

The academic concept underpinning NUMed Malaysia is for the transnational delivery in Malaysia of a range of undergraduate biomedical and medical degree programmes, equivalent and of identical standard to Newcastle University’s UK-based provision, contextualised to  SE Asia taking into account cultural differences. Many of our programmes offer opportunities for periods of study in the UK.

The Dean of Clinical Affairs is critical to the management of Quality Assurance (QA) in relation to undergraduate clinical education provision at NUMed, and with the Deans of Academic and Student Affairs and the NUMed Operational Board will contribute to the development of the QA framework in medicine.

The Dean of Clinical Affairs will have direct responsibility for managing the delivery of clinical aspects of the integrated medical degree programme within NUMed, and in conjunction with the other Deans, the NUMed Executive Board, and the Board of Medical Studies, for ensuring the effectiveness of learning, teaching and assessment at NUMed.

We are seeking a leader who is credible with senior academics, focused on achieving research and teaching performance of the highest standard, and committed to the richness and diversity of Newcastle’s proud tradition in the field of medicine.

We invite applications from candidates who are medical qualified with specialist training (in any discipline) and possess the knowledge, ability and expertise to teach within Medical Education programmes. The ability to work at a strategic level, lead change and engage others is also essential.
