Senior Clinical Fellow (Registrar) in Neurology

December 2022-August 2023

These posts are not recognized for training nor do they attract an NTN. However, they do offer very high quality experience, a very good grounding in neurology and provide an excellent opportunity for candidates to gain valuable experience in preparing to apply for neurology ST3+ rotations or to enter research.

The department prides itself on its focus on education and training and work very hard to deliver high quality training. In recognition of this, we are consistently one of the highest performing neurosciences units in the UK on the GMC Trainee Surveys. We have an excellent track record of supporting clinical fellows to secure NTNs in neurology or allied disciplines in London or other UK institutions. We will tailor the training available to the needs of each candidate so we can also provide senior registrar

training for potential candidates who are post-CCT and looking for consultant positions.

We can also consider senior SHOs to participate if they are keen to do neurology in the future. We provide support for those applying for neurology NTNs. Furthermore, if the trainee maintains a good record of training via the e-portfolio system, then it may be possible to have this time counted towards training in the future. We can also provide advice and support for those thinking of applying for a CESR in neurology.
