Up to 7 posts available
Full Time Fixed Term Appointment
Candidates are invited to apply for the above posts. These are unique and exciting new posts aimed at senior trainees / post-CCT doctors in anaesthesia. The objective of the post is to develop the candidate in the role of a perioperative care clinician, through a combination of experiential and didactic learning. We are offering 1 year fixed term contracts with a start date of Wednesday 3 August 2016.
Clinical duties will be based on the Post Anaesthetic Care Unit at the UCH Westmoreland Street site, which will deliver high-quality perioperative care to high-risk patients undergoing major urological and thoracic surgery. Fellows will also be provided with opportunities to lead and manage preoperative assessment clinics, undertake high-risk surgical patient clinical ward rounds and develop their clinical competences in the intra-operative care of thoracic and urological patients. The fellow will be the senior doctor on site out of hours and will have responsibility for emergency care (including cardiac arrest).
A key feature of the post is the opportunity to undertake the UCL MSc. Course in Perioperative Medicine, led by Dr David Walker.
Funding for the MSc. Course will be provided for the fellows if they wish to undertake it; this funding is dependent on successful completion of the course within 2 years. Fellows will also have the opportunity to undertake a research project under the supervision of Dr Ramani Moonesinghe or independently. Allocated time for research / MSc. studies are provided within the rota. The rota is banded at 1A.
All applicants must be eligible for full GMC registration. We welcome applicants with a background in anaesthesia who have achieved competences and qualifications equivalent to the beginning of the ST5 training year (i.e. post-FRCA). UK based trainees seeking out of programme experience would be encouraged to seek prospective approval for Out of Programme Training from the RCoA. Previous critical care experience is essential for this post.
