The Royal London has excellent links with Queen Mary University and the department has a strong educational focus, with opportunities for teaching medical students of all levels and to be involved in innovative projects around medical education.

The job plan consists of 10 Programmed Activities per week and successful candidates will participate in an on-call rota. Details of the job plan are included in the application pack.

Candidates who wish to work part-time are encouraged to apply.
