Job Details

St. George's University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust Department of Neurology The Atkinson Morley Neuroscience Rotations Several ST1/ST2 posts are available providing 12 months training from August 2023 to August 2024

The neuroscience centre is located in the Atkinson Morley Wing at St. George's University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and provides state of the art facilities for diagnosis and treatment in all branches of neurology.

These posts are not formally recognised for core or higher training nor do they attract an NTN. However, they do offer excellent experience and access to the same educational opportunities as our core trainees. We work very hard to deliver high quality training. Previous trainees have gone on to secure NTNs in neurology, neurosurgery, ACCS, radiology or allied disciplines.

The rotations are very much geared to clinical neurosciences as a career.

These posts have been popular with candidates trying to secure an IMT number, candidates who would like to experience neurology, stroke and neurorehabilitation as F3 as well as candidates who have completed ST2 training and are looking to invest a year gaining experience and skills in clinical neurosciences prior to applying for an ST3 position. ST3 level acting up experience may be available to suitable candidates. We also have an excellent track record of helping more junior candidates go on to secure CMT and ST rotations.
