Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

Chief Registrar Medicine

(ST4 and above)

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic and dedicated trainee to work within SheffieldTeaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust as a Chief Registrar, starting in August 2018 for 12 months.

The chief registrar role provides junior doctors with the chance to develop a wide range of skills in leadership and management, education and quality improvement.

The chief registrar initiative has been developed by the Future Hospital Programme at the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) and has the support of Health Education England, English deans and the General Medical Council (GMC).

Working as a chief registrar provides trainees with a springboard that places them at the heart of designing patient care, and it enables trainees to take ownership of their career development.

Uniquely, this role will enable the postholder to continue in their clinical role for 3 days per week at STH, with the remaining 2 days being protected for leadership development and quality improvement project management. Joining the third cohort of an established and already successful UK-wide programme, the chief registrars will participate in a first-class, bespoke leadership development programme that is delivered in partnership with the Faculty of Medical Leadership and Management (FMLM) and the RCP’s Education Department.

This post will be undertaken as an in programme opportunity. Requests must be agreed prospectively with formal support from the TPD and Postgraduate Dean.

Applications are welcomed from anyone working to ST4 level or above who is training in a medical specialty that includes general internal medicine, and who has full GMC registration and has attained the full MRCP diploma or equivalent.
