Clinical Development Fellows
Fixed Term for 6 to12 months
Dr Gray’s Hospital welcomes Clinical Development Fellows as part of the team. Dr Gray’s is the smallest District General Hospital in Scotland and therefore offers the benefits of an experience aligned to Rural Medicine in a small friendly setting and opportunity to work across specialties.
Some specific benefits may include:
- Clinical experience and practical skills are often gained where these would be hard to achieve in a larger teaching hospital environment.
- Direct Consultant supervision, support and training.
- Breadth of experience in ED with opportunity to work in different specialties / settings e.g. theatres.
- Further enhancement of your CV by incorporating this expanded role.
- Additional hours pay given the small number out of hours (12 hours/week) in the CDF contract.
Exciting developments and workforce innovation are currently taking place at Dr Gray’s Hospital by promoting Rural Medicine, Acute Medicine and Family Medicine models as well as potential for some specialist interests such as a transfer role.
We are looking to develop Dr Gray’s as a Centre of Excellence for Rural Medicine training and experience.
The Clinical Developmental Fellowship (CDF) programme is suitable for Trainees who have recently completed or are about to complete (Aug 2021 or Aug 2022) the UK Foundation Programme, Core Surgical Training or Core Medical Training.

It comprises of experience in a range of Clinical Specialties including ED, AMAU, HDU, General Surgery, Orthopaedics, Paediatrics, Obstetrics & Gynaecology and Mental Health.
In addition to the clinical component you will be assigned to an area of developmental interest in collaboration with the University of Aberdeen: such as Medical Education and Simulation training, Quality Improvement, Research and Development, or Leadership and Management. These activities will be supported through a mentorship programme and all successful applicants will have the opportunity to complete a teaching qualification in a chosen area of mutual benefit to the individual and NHS Grampian.
Successful candidates will be contracted for 40 hours per week - 28 hours per week on average undertaking clinical activities;
12 hours per week on average will be protected for developmental activities and there will be an out-of-hours commitment.
The post holder will be paid at ST level based on their previous experience. A banding supplement relevant to the OOH component of their rotas will also be received.
The post is of high educational value and supported by the University of Aberdeen Medical School.
However, it is not recognised for training by the Postgraduate Dean.
