Job overview

Applications are invited for Clinical Fellow (Higher) positions in Cardiology for 12 months at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, part of Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. The posts have been created to support the middle-grade Cardiology service and are considered the equivalent of the SpR grade. The posts will provide an exciting opportunity for junior doctors hoping to gain excellent experience in Clinical Cardiology within the context of a major UK Teaching Hospital. All previous Clinical Fellows who wished to do so have been successful in subsequently gaining a National Training Number in Cardiology or a consultant post.

The posts will commence September 2022 or as soon as possible thereafter.

Main duties of the job

The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to the Acute Medicine take rota and to participate in the cardiology inpatient service and (subject to experience) the cardiology SpR out-of-hours on-call rota (1 in 5 to 1 in 8, non-resident).

In order to be considered applicants must meet the essential criteria.

Please note that these posts do not carry Postgraduate Dean’s approval or training recognition.

Full Registration and a Licence to Practice with the General Medical Council at time of application is required.

Working for your organisation

The applicant must have demonstrable skills in listening, reading, writing and speaking in English that enable effective communication about medical topics with patients and colleagues, as set out in the GMC’s Good Medical Practice (2013). Non-UK applicants must possess the IELTS/OET exam before obtaining a GMC licence to practice.

Applications from job seekers who require skilled worker sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. For further information please visit the UK Visas and Immigration website.

It is a requirement for skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, to present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement.
