Kings College Hospital - Skull Base Fellowship

Tenure: 12 months

Start date: May 2019


Applications are invited to apply for the post of Neurosurgical Skull Base Fellow based at King’s College Hospital Foundation Trust. This clinical fellowship is intended to allow an experienced neurosurgical trainee to obtain experience over one to two years in a sub-specialist interest within neurosurgery.  This post will provide experience sufficient to allow a successful fellow to offer himself/herself for appointment to a consultant position involving a substantial commitment to this specialist area of neurosurgery.  To achieve this, the trainee will be given experience in the following broad areas.


  1. The surgical and endocrinological assessment and investigation of patients with skull base and pituitary lesions.


  1. The opportunity to conduct research into skull base and pituitary neurosurgery and publish research papers in peer reviewed journals.


  1. The participation in a multi-disciplinary team consisting of endocrinologists, skull base ENT and neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists, neuropathologists and radiotherapists.


  1. The fellow will be expected to assist in, and in time perform (depending on his/her level of experience) surgery for the neurovascular compression syndromes.


  1. The fellow will also be expected to attend one or two national/ international meetings each year and present abstracts.


Surgeons preparing to work as consultants must be intimately involved with the running of the neurosurgical service and in providing some element of continuity of care for the patients since this will be an integral part of their practice as consultants.  The Fellow will therefore participate in the general neurosurgical rota, and will also be expected to share responsibility for the neurosurgical patients in their area of sub specialist interest outside of strict rota commitments.
