Junior Surgical Fellow
This Junior Surgical Fellow (JSF) post is suitable for candidates who are post F2 level or above and who are interested in pursuing a career in surgery, developing their clinical and surgical skills and gaining a unique experience in the surgical management of a wide range of malignancies in one of Europe’s largest comprehensive cancer centres.
They will gain exposure to inpatient and outpatient care; urgent/emergency care, peri-operative management, and be supported to gain a good grounding in basic and intermediate surgical skills and exposure to minimally invasive surgery and to complex surgery where desired.
This is an exciting opportunity to work in a busy tertiary centre, with unlimited opportunities to learn about modern cancer management in the field of surgery, including state of the art techniques such as robotic surgery and cytoreductive surgery with heated intra-peritoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC).
The surgical experience offered at the Christie will be invaluable when applying for higher grade training posts in any surgical sub-specialty.
This post is designed to provide a parallel training experience. Although it is not formally recognised as a training post, it will deliver a similar experience, with the same training and learning opportunities and educational supervision offered to those in a CT 1/2 post. It is ideally suited to provide a bridge to core and speciality training. At the end of the post they will be provided with a reference form the Clinical Director to support their experience and will receive guidance and support in applying for surgical training programmes in the future.
