Due to extensive growth within our faculty we are currently recruiting for a Trust Grade Clinical Fellow working at the equivalent of the Senior House Officer grade, to join the Acute Medicine Department at the Princess Royal University Hospital (BR6 8ND). Successful individuals will undertake up to a 12 month programme commencing from August 2019.

Acute Medicine at the Princess Royal forms part of the Acute and Emergency Medicine Division and works closely with the Emergency Department to provide acute care services on the site based in the Acute Medical Unit and the Ambulatory unit. The post holder will work as part of a dynamic team comprising of 8 Acute Medicine Consultants and 24 junior doctors.

Individuals will get the chance to work on the acute medical take focusing on managing acutely unwell patients within the first 48 hours of admission, and more stable acute patients in the ambulatory unit. The appointee will gain experience in managing a large range of medical conditions and the opportunity to gain confidence in assessing and treating unstable patients.

This post would be suitable for any trainee who has, or are on course to, successfully complete a 2-year Foundation School programme or has achieved equivalent competencies who will join at a Junior Clinical Fellow level. Ideally trainees will have an up to date certification for Adult Life Support training, or be able to fulfil the necessary qualification upon appointment.

Although this appointment is not accredited for training through HEE, the appointee will be expected to participate fully in the many educational and training opportunities within the department and the hospital.  The appointee will have a named clinical/ education supervisor.  Annual leave and study leave is commensurate with other post foundation doctors.

The experience and opportunities offered would be excellent experience for applicants planning a career in any medical specialty.

Previous post holders have been successful in gaining entry to training programmes upon completion as well as completing their Royal College membership exams.
