CLINICAL FELLOW IN STRUCTURAL HEART INTERVENTION

Barts Heart Centre

The Clinical Fellow posts are based in the Barts Heart Centre, Barts Health NHS Trust.

Barts Heart Centre is the largest cardiac centre in the UK. It was formed in 2015 following the merger of the cardiac units at The Heart Hospital, The London Chest Hospital and St. Bartholomew's Hospital. It is the heart attack centre for the region and provides comprehensive surgical and interventional cardiology services, specialist cardiac imaging, electrophysiology services including device implants and ablation therapy for arrhythmia, grown up congenital heart disease, heart muscle disease and heart failure services. These posts therefore provide exposure to a wide variety of cardiology and medical conditions.

The Structural Heart Intervention Program is a comprehensive and high volume program covering all aspects of structural heart intervention including TAVI, MitraClip, other valvular interventions and complex intervention in congenital heart disease and the aorta.

The posts are ideally suited to adult congenital heart or interventional cardiology trainees who have already gained significant experience in cardiac catheterization and interventional cardiology and wish to supplement this training with a further period of dedicated training in structural heart intervention. MCRP (or equivalent) is essential. The successful candidate can expect to receive first operator training in many of these procedures with additional exposure to novel and experimental technologies and techniques.

The main responsibilities of this post are:
  • To work as part of a team to support all the Structural Heart Intervention Program activities including outpatient clinics, ward rounds, invasive procedures and multidisciplinary team meetings.
  • Subject to competency assessment the successful candidate will receive training in all relevant interventional procedures.
  • In addition responsibilities include maintaining the highest quality care and patient safety at all times and assisting in the smooth running of the departments.
  • Collection of data on all procedures and submission to relevant national databases
  • The successful candidate will be expected to demonstrate an ongoing commitment to audit and research and to actively contribute to the departments research efforts.
