  • General Plastic Fellow: Reconstructive and microsurgical Fellowship with a head and neck focus
  • Junior Plastic Fellow: Suitable for international medical graduates with plastic surgery experience in their country or a non-trainee registrar with general experience

We are looking for two General Plastic Fellows to join our plastic surgery unit in July 2020 for one year. Hutt Hospital is well-known for its plastic and reconstructive surgery and has regularly had Fellows from other countries who come to experience a different hospital and way of life before taking up a consultant role somewhere else in the future. You will be able to contribute to the registrar roster and call requirements part of a limited service commitment.

General Fellow

This Fellow appointment would suit someone who has recently finished their training or gained their Fellowship and provides the opportunity to learn skills and share their knowledge with the other registrars, and provide mentorship and leadership to the registrar team.This role is seen as a stepping stone for the candidate who may be considering a consultant position in their country in the near future and who wants to gain the experience of working in a different environment/culture.

You'll also need to be highly-motivated and able to provide teaching and mentoring to junior registrars while at the same time observing and participating in a sub-specialty interest of your choice.

Junior Plastic Fellow

This would suit an international medical graduate with plastic surgery experience in their country or a non-trainee registrar with general experience.

This Fellowship is for a non-trainee appointment and will give an overseas registrar who has finished or near finished their training the opportunity to learn skills and share their knowledge with the other registrars, and participate on the on call and local anaesthetic rosters.
