Locum Appointment for Training (ST4) in Anaesthetics

Ref:  CI185698

Applications are invited for four LAT posts within the North of Scotland Anaesthetic Training Programme.  The posts are ST4 level although there may be the option to appoint at a lower grade (CT2 or CT3 level).

The North of Scotland Anaesthetic Training Programme is delivered through Aberdeen Royal Infirmary in Aberdeen and Raigmore Hospital in Inverness. These posts may be based at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary or Raigmore Hospital in Inverness, depending on experience of the successful applicant and needs of the training programme.  At least 12 months previous experience in Anaesthesia in the UK and the Initial Assessment of Competence and Initial Assessment of Competence in Obstetric Anaesthesia are desirable.

Three posts commence from 7th August 2024 for a period of 12 months.  One post will commence on 5th November 2024 for eight months.

Brief Description of the programme:

Both Aberdeen Royal Infirmary and Raigmore Hospital have most major surgical specialties on a single site. Maternity and Paediatric services are provided at both sites. Allocation of trainees between the two sites takes into account this regional variation in workload.

The Aberdeen Medical School has students on both hospital sites, allowing opportunities to become involved in student teaching. Students rotate through Anaesthetics at various times in their degree programme and Anaesthetic trainees are often actively involved in delivering medical education.

Aberdeen and Inverness are well served by air, rail and road and uniquely allow quick and easy access to the wild and spectacular scenery of Royal Deeside and the Highlands. Both Inverness and Aberdeen have vibrant modern city centres and are great places to live and bring up families.
