International (Medical Training Initiative) Training Fellowships in Neonatology

Based at The Grange University Hospital, Cwmbran, South East Wales, United Kingdom

Anticipated Start Date: September 2022

Exciting opportunities are available for training in neonatology in the UK.

The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health has developed the MTI(P) scheme to enable non-UK/EEA paediatricians, with MRCPCH or other postgraduate qualifications (MD Paediatrics or equivalent), to undertake high-quality postgraduate training in paediatrics for a maximum of 24 months, before returning to work in their home countries.

This advertisement is for direct application to the Health Board for the MTI posts.

The Grange University Hospital, Cwmbran, Wales is looking to award  fellowships in Neonatal Medicine under the Medical Training Initiative (MTI) of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) for a period of 2 years starting September 2022 or soon after. The Fellowships are available to adequately qualified doctors with post-graduate qualifications (MRCPCH, MD Paediatrics, DNB) looking for a higher specialist training in Neonatology. The first 3-6 months of the training will be at the Tier 1 (SHO equivalent) level and with expected progress, the next 18-21 months will be at the Tier 2 level (Registrar equivalent).

The Neonatal Unit of the Grange University Hospital (Aneurin Bevan University Health Board) is a Level 3 unit with 4500 days of intensive and high-dependency care and over 450 admissions per annum. It provides over 2500 days of respiratory care and has facilities for high frequency oscillatory ventilation, nitric oxide therapy and therapeutic hypothermia. The Unit has 11 full time neonatal consultants. 

The Fellowship programme will provide a very comprehensive training and experience in neonatology, with the view that the individual at the end of the programme will be able to go back to the home country as an independent neonatal practitioner. Extensive neonatal experience including management of normal delivery, complex resuscitation, management of extremely preterm babies (23 weeks onwards), various modes of ventilation including high frequency ventilation and nitric oxide therapy, echocardiography, cranial ultrasound examinations, whole body hypothermia including amplitude integrated EEG, structured neurodevelopmental assessment etc. will be gained by the end of the post.

There is an exhaustive and excellent educational programme that runs in the Unit and this includes simulation training in the acute and in communication situations. The candidate will be expected to take up audit projects, quality improvement programmes and research projects running in the unit at the time and successfully completed projects will be submitted for presentation to regional and national meetings.

The candidate will be continuously mentored and formal appraisals and assessments will be carried out as per the Royal College standards. English Language examinations with adequate marks in the IELTS/OET is essential for the posts.
