Acute Medicine and Critical Care Rotations: Clinical Fellow

Clinical Fellows Rotations (CT 2+) in Acute Medicine, Critical Care and Emergency Medicine

King’s College Hospital NHS Trust is one of the largest and busiest in London, with a well-established national and international reputation for clinical excellence, innovation and achievement. The hospital not only serves a diverse, multi-ethnic local population but operates as one of the four major trauma centres within the capital, a major trauma centre for Kent and as a tertiary services centre for neuroscience (including stroke), haematological oncology, cardiac / cardio-thoracic (including acute MI revascularisation), cystic fibrosis, and hepatobiliary (including liver transplantation) patients. As a result, King’s has an unrivalled patient population in terms of clinical diversity and complexity.

Our one year rotations are made up of four month posts, which provide training and experience in the following specialties:

Acute Medicine/Critical Care Medicine/Critical Care Outreach

Acute Medicine/Critical Care Medicine/Emergency Medicine

These posts offer an excellent opportunity to gain broad experience in triaging and managing acutely unwell or deteriorating patients and are designed for doctors wanting to gain more experience prior to taking on a more senior role. The experience and opportunities offered would be particularly suitable for applicants planning a career in Medicine, Critical Care or Emergency Medicine.

Whilst these posts are not recognised by the Deanery for training, the Trust is committed to the educational development of medical staff within this programme. Every Clinical Fellow will be allocated an educational supervisor for the year and a clinical supervisor for the specialty they are working in and the will have the opportunity to access organized teaching across these three front-line departments and develop teaching/simulation skills.

There is an expectation to complete an Audit, Quality Improvement or Research project throughout the year as a thread. This concept has been embedded within each block to allow continuity across the year.
