The department is committed to support the appointee by offering them extensive opportunities to develop their portfolio, with a view to their successful progression onto the registrar level. This is an exciting opportunity for a dynamic and experienced surgical trainee with ambition to progress to registrar level.

As part of the Health Board's strategic collaboration with Bangor University, individuals with an interest in teaching and research who can demonstrate and agree a possible contribution to the School can be considered and nominated for recognition through the University's process for granting honorary titles and help to deliver our shared vision for the North Wales School of Medicine and Health.
