JOB PURPOSE

The LULU Fellow will be expected to develop knowledge both clinically and surgically over a 6 month or 1 year fellowship. The fellow will also develop sufficient knowledge and leadership skills in order for them to take up a Consultant role in any department, dealing with a complex shoulder and elbow workload, including GIRFT Hubs for Total Elbow Arthroplasty.

THE LEEDS UPPER LIMB UNIT (LULU)

The service is comprises six Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeons who undertake all aspects of upper limb reconstruction. The case mix is varied and each Consultant has their own field of interest and expertise.

PARTICULARS OF APPOINTMENT

We encourage fellows to be aiming to take up a consultant post at the end of the appointment; the fellows role will be tailored to each successful candidate. This may mean that you spend more time with selected members of the LULU team than others. The role will evolve such that you will be taught the assessment of complex shoulder and elbow conditions, leading to a supervised trauma and elective operative practice. With development of the Fellows portfolio, more independent practice will be expected, both in clinics and in theatre, within your competency level.

DUTIES

The Fellow will assist in clinics (trauma and elective), reviewing and communicating with inpatients, and operating lists as appropriate (adults and children). There will be flexible sessions to include research and administration. Secretarial support will be provided for the post.

LULU has two registrars and the successful candidate will be involved in their support and training throughout the fellowship. The training of our registrars in Trauma & Orthopaedics with regards to upper limb surgery is as important to us as advanced fellowship training. It is vital that the successful candidate understands this and is able to balance their desire to learn alongside supporting more junior colleagues.

There is no on-call commitment; however there will be an expectation as part of the role to offer 12 sessions per annum (pro rata) of either weekday or weekend trauma lists or extra waiting list work whether that is in clinic or theatre. This will be agreed with the Lead Clinical Supervisor within the LULU, who will liaise with LGI or CAH Managers to arrange.
