King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is one of the UK’s largest and busiest teaching Trusts with a turnover of c£1 billion, 1.5 million patient contacts a year and more than 12,800 staff based across 5 main sites in South East London. The Trust provides a full range of local hospital services across its different sites, and specialist services from King’s College Hospital (KCH) sites at Denmark Hill in Camberwell and at the Princess Royal University Hospital (PRUH) site in the London Borough of Bromley.

Applications are invited for the post of Senior Clinical Fellow in the sub-specialties of Cardiac Imaging/Echocardiology.

Tenure: 12 months Post starting Jan/Feb 2021

These posts are designed for Specialty Trainees in Cardiology who intend to specialise in these sub-specialties who have already commenced training in general cardiology and wish to gain more sub-specialty experience, perhaps by taking an ‘out-of-programme experience [OOPE]’ from their current training programmes.

The successful candidates will be trained in advanced aspects of the respective specialty and will gain high volume experience. There will be involvement in all aspects of the busy clinical service, including acute coronary intervention (NSTEMI and primary PCI), acute/chronic heart failure/devices and structural cardiac intervention, including the TAVI programme. The department undertakes all forms of advanced echocardiography including Real Time 3D, contrast, stress and peri-procedural TOE, and has a rapidly growing Cardic MRI Department.

This is a clinical post and the appointee will be expected to contribute to the clinical service with the other 7 Specialty registrars. This will involve the on-call rota (1:10) and covering emergencies in other specialties within the hospital. Whilst these are not research fellow posts, there will be opportunities to get involved with commercial and non-commercial cardiac research.
