Honorary status

We may choose to recognise the contribution made by an individual, not employed by the Universities of Sussex or Brighton as an assigned employee of BSMS, by granting them honorary status.

Honorary Status

Honorary status may be granted to an individual in respect of their contribution to the School’s:

  • academic work (teaching, curriculum development and/or research) - the titles being linked to Lecturer and Senior Lecturer grades, or
  • research - the titles being linked to Research grades.

Honorary Title

  • Suitable for an individual who is likely to have a long-term commitment to the School’s work.

Honorary Academic (NHS) contract

Please note that honorary or visiting titles are separate from honorary academic NHS contracts, which are issued to NHS employees who undertake teaching or research as part of their substantive employment contract (job plan). The honorary contract is a Follett requirement.

If you undertake teaching or research as part of your job plan, your NHS Trust's Personnel Department will request an honorary contract on your behalf and this will be reviewed annually as part of your job plan.


Teaching facilitators

During years 1 and 2 BSMS students spend a day each week studying Clinical Practice. These modules prepare them to work in the clinical environment and to integrate clinical learning with biomedical science they have learnt in other modules.

Facilitators are required for morning or afternoon sessions on Tuesdays (Module 101) or Thursdays (Module 201).

During year 4, our students undertake a module in general practice (Module 403) with university-based teaching.

Facilitators are required on Fridays for associated small group work and simulated surgeries.
