The posts are suitable for doctors who have completed Foundation or Core Medical Training. We will also consider international medical graduates with equivalent competencies. These posts are for an initial 12 months but can be adjusted to suit personal circumstances and extended on completion of successful appraisal.

Candidates that are non-GMC registered at the point of application will be considered for this position, under the Trusts International Fellowship Scheme (please note, there is a 500 admin charge for this scheme).

These highly attractive and popular posts which were established in 2019 now include opportunities to link to a Fellowship development programme such as Medical Leadership, Medical Education and research, and subspecialty projects.

You will have access to study leaves and study budget to subsidise a postgraduate qualification in an area of your Fellowship. Non-clinical time will be built into your job plan for continuous professional development (CPD).

Main duties of the job

These posts have an assigned educational supervisor and a wide range of educational opportunities available which can be tailored to your needs. The education programme for junior doctors at our hospital is active and includes a highly successful PACES teaching programme with frequent scheduled teaching sessions for 6 weeks prior to each exam diet. These posts are identical in the clinical supervision, educational supervision and in-house educational programme opportunities given to our medical trainees. The wide breadth of services available at MFT allows experience of specialised clinics that might otherwise be difficult to attend.The programme offers great flexibility in terms of out of hours commitment and supporting health and wellbeing, and work-life balance. We will consider applications for unpaid leave in addition to the usual annual leave entitlement. Out of hours working is essential but we have a variety of rotas which includes short weekend shifts and weekday evening shifts, with or without night shift. The A& E rotation will obviously include nights as a matter of course.
