Clinical Fellow in Resuscitation Medicine (ST3+ equivalent)
This post is a 2 year rotation through emergency and critical care medicine, including a funded MSc in Emergency and Resuscitation Medicine
We are seeking enthusiastic, full time clinical Fellow (ST3+ equivalent) posts in Resuscitation Medicine at Barts Health NHS Trust. This is a unique opportunity to join the UK's largest trust, trauma centre and heart attack centre, and home of London's Air Ambulance. The posts are to commence on 03 August 2022 for two years and include six month placements in the Emergency Departments at Royal London Hospital, Newham University Hospital and Whipps Cross University Hospital; and six months in critical care at Whipps Cross Hospital (including intensive care, high dependency care and anaesthesia). Applicants should have a minimum of at least three years medical post-graduate training, including 12 months in Emergency Medicine and 6 months in any of acute medicine, anaesthesia or critical care or its equivalent.
Main duties of the job
The post will include a funded 2 year Diploma in Emergency and Resuscitation Medicine at Queen Mary University of London. This course is designed for doctors who wish to develop a sub-speciality interest in resuscitation medicine. It will appeal to trainees in emergency, acute, pre-hospital and intensive care medicine, and anaesthesia. This is an online course with an international faculty of leading experts in their fields. The content and learning will parallel professional examinations in Emergency Medicine but will take the student to a higher level than fellowship in this area. Further information is available on the QMUL website. The successful applicants will have access to a dedicated ultrasound training facility and free attendance at up to three simulation resuscitation days each year (in addition to departmental training). Students will have full access to QMUL teaching facilities.
