Applications are invited for Clinical Fellows in Adult Critical Care Medicine, for six to twelve months starting in August 2022 and February 2023. We wish to appoint enthusiastic doctors to join our team in Aberdeen.
Although the posts are not recognised as training positions by the Postgraduate Dean or Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine, they will be extremely useful for those wishing to gain additional knowledge and skills in Critical Care Medicine. They will also be suitable for those seeking additional experience in Critical Care for equivalence (CESR) applications.
This post can provide flexible training and we would welcome discussion with you about how the post can be tailored to individual needs. Opportunities are available to develop new and additional skills in extracorporeal life support, trauma management, echocardiography, education and simulation, quality improvement and research. Candidates will have the opportunity to build on their own field of interest.
The successful applicants will join a dedicated team of 15 Critical Care Consultants leading the Critical Care Department, in Aberdeen Royal Infirmary. The Critical Care Department in Aberdeen is delivered across two areas totalling 32 beds providing Level 2 and Level 3 to over 1800 patients a year. We admit patients from across the North of Scotland and the Northern Isles and also receive patients from shipping and offshore installations. A six bedded Cardiothoracic ICU sits adjacent to the General ICU and admits around 600 patients per annum.
All major specialties are covered within the ICU (with the exception of transplant surgery) including Cardiac and Thoracic Surgery, Major Vascular Surgery, Major Head and Neck Surgery, Plastics, Neurosurgery and Major Trauma. The ICU provides Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygen (ECMO) support for patients from all Scottish Health Boards requiring extracorporeal life support. Aberdeen is the commissioned National ECMO Centre for Scotland, an ELSO centre of excellence and an integral part of the UK ECMO Network.
