The post is for 12 months.  

Applications are invited for two permanent Clinical Fellow posts to join the Medicine for the Elderly Teams Perth and Kinross, starting 7 Aug 2024 ending 5th Aug 2025

The Medicine for the Elderly service based at Perth Royal Infirmary is undergoing a period of change and innovation. At present the Medicine for the Elderly unit provides a comprehensive service to older in-patients in Perth Royal including an acute frailty team and frailty unit, acute MFE wards, orthogeriatric service and a 22 bedded rehab and assessment unit. Wider care to the older population of Perth and Kinross is delivered through a rapid assessment and falls service and movement disorder clinic; we provide MFE service to two 17 and 18 bedded community hospitals. 

Medicine for the Elderly is Tayside’s largest employer of Clinical Fellows and Speciality Doctors, and our team have a reputation for providing opportunities and career development in this career grade.
