The Liver Intensive Care Unit at King’s College Hospital has a single vacancy on the Clinical Fellow rota commencing November 2018. Further posts are available from August 2019.
Applications are invited from trainees with an interest in Intensive Care Medicine, Anaesthesia or Hepatology. These posts are generally suited to applicants who have already completed core training and who have embarked on specialty training. It is not unusual for us to have a number of post-CCT fellows on the rota. Intensive care experience and advanced airway skills are desirable but not essential (as in the case of hepatology trainees). Membership/fellowship of the relevant Royal College or equivalent for overseas applicants is preferred. Posts are available for 6 months up to 2 years dependent on requirements.

Staffed by a specialist team of intensive care doctors, it has been setting international standards for patient care for more than two decades and is a leading centre for the development and use of advanced and innovative therapies
We have a special interest in the management of acute liver failure, complications of portal hypertension and chronic liver disease and liver transplantation.We also admit patients from other disciplines, and have a pedigree in the management of complex haematology, cardiology and cardiothoracic surgical patients requiring circulatory support (including ECMO) and general medical and surgical patients.
Within both the Institute of Liver Studies and the Trust (organised by the Department of Postgraduate Medical and Dental Education) there is a comprehensive teaching programme with protected teaching time and access to the excellent medical school facilities. The post includes on call duties.
