Clinical Innovation Fellow- The Digital Health Validation Lab

The University of Glasgow-led Living Laboratory for Precision Medicine, is an internationally leading programme supported by UKRI Strength in Places Funding, bringing together partners from across academia, industry and healthcare to deliver projects focused on translating cutting-edge science and healthcare innovation into a real-world clinical setting.

One of these projects is the Digital Health Validation Lab, led by Prof Sandosh Padmanabhan. The lab offers specialised space that allows digital health developers to assess their products along the entire development process, from determining feasibility and value of a product idea through to testing the safety and efficacy of a completed product, enhancing the evaluation and validation of digital health technologies for clinical use.

In collaboration with NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde the DHVL is looking to appoint several Clinical Innovation Fellows to undertake a 12-month contract. The role of the Clinical Innovation Fellow will be to help coordinate DHVL engagement from a clinical perspective. This will include coordinating access to relevant clinical experts, supporting setting up of trials and helping analyse the resulting outputs. It will be an opportunity to be involved at the cutting edge of clinical technology development and ensuring that these technologies are fit for purpose i.e.,useable and useful within a clinical context

These Clinical Innovation Fellow Posts will commence in August 2023.and in addition to the DHVL duties the postholder will carry out clinical work in one of 3 areas i.e. Emergency Department, orthopaedics and paediatrics. Within these teams you will play a fundamental role in gaining clinical experience. You will be trained, given opportunities to develop your clinical skills and knowledge to achieve your future career goals. The intention is for you to leave the QEUH with a passion for your selected speciality and have a robust and relevant CV to support your career aspirations. Whilst prior experience in your selected field is desirable it is not an absolute requirement. You will take part in our award-winning education programme which will provide you with the core teaching and supervision similar to that of an FY2 / CT1. 

Applicants should have achieved foundation level competencies and have worked for at least 6 months within the NHS (excludes clinical attachments and observership posts).

The post will be 30% clinical and 70% Innovation validation with DHVL and as part of the latter the postholder will be able to spend 20% of their time undertaking the PG Cert qualification. The role will be based at the QEUH campus. 

Whether you’re considering your next career move, want some more experience before entering specialist training, simply want to learn something new or are just excited to work within the bustling, biggest and busiest hospital in Scotland, make your time count for something, these posts have much to offer you.

These posts have not been approved for Training purposes by NES. To practice medicine in the UK you need to hold both GMC registration and a current licence to practice. All candidates must be available to commence work on 2nd August 2023.
