Trust Grade Doctor (ST3+) Chief Registrar

Job Reference: 358-2234314-ESM

Employer:
University Hospitals of Leicester
Department:
General Internal Medicine
Location:
Leicester Royal Infirmary, Leicester
Salary:
£48,075

Fully funded post available from August 2020, ST5 and above

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic and dedicated trainee to join University Hospitals Leicester as a chief registrar, starting in August 2020.

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 a clinical role for 3 days per week, with the remaining 2 days being protected for leadership development and quality improvement project management. Joining the second 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.

Applications are welcomed from anyone working to ST5 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.

This is a fixed-term role for a period of 12 months.
