Applications are invited from suitably qualified candidates for the post of Clinical Fellow in Anaesthesia with an interest in medical education (CT2/ST3/SHO grade).

This post is suitable for doctors in between Core and Intermediate training.

The successful candidate will be given the opportunity to explore the field of medical education in greater depth whilst also maintaining their clinical skills in anaesthesia & critical care. Post holders will strengthen their offering in future job applications by showing a greater awareness of education in the context of a large NHS Trust and the application of theory to the practice of teaching.

Fellows will undertake improvement projects and become involved with the management of training within a large NHS Trust. The fellow will be mentored by two experienced medical educators who will help identify areas for development to expand the fellow’s portfolio. Projects will aim to review training in light of the challenges brought by COVID-19 and explore ways to integrate learning psychology into teaching. There will be scope for educational research and innovation particularly as the Trust undergoing a £450m service reconfiguration bringing many opportunities to ‘do things differently’.

The fellow will maintain their clinical practice through participation on a full on-call rota (1:7 or 1:8). This may be on the maternity unit, ICU or emergency theatres depending on the needs of the organisation. It is expected that the majority of ‘normal working’ days will be spent on education activities but additional clinical sessions may be possible.

The post is to commence from August, 2021 for a period of 12 months.

As this post is regulated by the Protection of Children Act 1999, The Criminal Justice Courts Act 2000 and / or the Care Standards Act 2000 an enhanced police criminal records disclosure will be requested by the Trust in the event of a successful application.

In the event of further vacancies short-listed applicants will be considered.
