Trust Doctor in Emergency General Surgery
Emergency General Surgery (EGS) Junior Clinical Fellow (FY3/CT1-CT2)
Leeds Institute of Emergency General Surgery (LIEGS)
We are delighted to announce the further expansion of the Emergency General Surgery Clinical Fellow programme as part of the Leeds Institute of Emergency General Surgery (LIEGS) Unit. After the successful delivery of this programme over the last 18 months we are looking to appoint 4 replacement full time Junior Clinical Fellows (JCFs) to start in February 2022. These posts combine emergency surgery on call exposure, elective activity in a base specialty and allotted time for pursuing secondary interests including academia, management/leadership and surgical education. The unit is committed to helping those wishing to build competitive portfolios ahead of surgical applications at either core training or higher surgical training level and engagement in the unit's activities is encouraged. We have a proven track record of converting our fellow posts to trainee rolls and can adapt the jobs accordingly to individual needs. The new posts will contribute to the SHO level emergency general surgery rota on a 1:9 rota frequency. The unit is training-focused and successful applicants will be given access to regular laparoscopic simulation sessions and core level training lists as part of their rotation.
The posts will start from 2nd February 2022 and are for an initial 6-month contract. It is anticipated that a second cohort of fellows will be recruited for August 2022 start date via a separate appointment process and as such contracts may be considered for extension on an individual basis.
The applicant is expected to have a major interest in a career in General Surgery. MRCS or equivalent is not essential but desirable and basic clinical surgical skills (FY2 or equivalent) should be demonstrated. We would expect the successful applicant to be able to perform at the level expected of a Day 1 Core Surgical Trainee.
Candidates must be fully registered with the General Medical Council and be eligible to work in the UK.
Please note if sufficient applications are received the post may close early.
